Description

Since its founding in 1981, The Howard Greenberg Gallery has built a vast and ever-changing collection of some of the most important photographs in the media. The gallery includes such masters as Berenice Abbott, Henri Cartier-Bresson, André Kertész, William Klein, Gordon Parks, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, Josef Sudek, and Edward Weston on its roster of artists. The gallery's collection also acts as a living history of photography, offering genres and styles spanning from Pictorialism to Modernism, in addition to contemporary photography and images conceived for industry, advertising and fashion.

Formerly a photographer and founder of The Center for Photography in Woodstock in 1977, Howard Greenberg has been one of a small group of gallerists, curators and historians responsible for the creation and development of the modern market for photography. As well, The Howard Greenberg Gallery which was founded in 1981 and originally known as Photofind, was the first to consistently exhibit photojournalism and "street" photography---now accepted as important components of photographic art.
