The Edywnn Houk Gallery first opened in Chicago in 1980, as the primary representative for André Kertesz, Brassai, Bill Brandt, Ilse Bing and other Modernists, and it played a major role in establishing a number of significant private and public collections. In 1991, Houk relocated to New York and opened the Edwynn Houk Gallery, at 745 Fifth Avenue. Since its inception in 1997, the gallery has presented ambitious exhibitions of 20th century masters including Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Moholy-Nagy, El Lissitzky, Robert Frank and Walker Evans, while simultaneously introducing the work of contemporary photographers who have since become leading participants in the field, including Sally Mann, Robert Polidori, Lynn Davis and Lalla Essaydi.
