“Howard Greenberg, Collection” Opening at the Musée de l’Elysée September 21, some 120 of the greatest photographs from Howard Greenberg’s vast private collection will be shown for the first time. The works range from the Modern aesthetics approach of the 20s and 30s with works by Edward Steichen, Edward Weston or the Czech School to Contemporary photographers such as Minor White, Harry Callahan and Robert Frank. Humanist photography is particularly well represented, including among others, Lewis Hine and David Seymour. An important section is dedicated to the Farm Security Administration’s photographers, who where witnesses to the Great Depression years of the 30s, such as Walker Evans or Dorothea Lange. Above all, the collection demonstrates the great influence of New York in the history of 20th century photography: architecture and urban life are conveyed in the images of Berenice Abbott, Weegee, Leon Levinstein, Lee Friedlander.
