Press Release

Nailya Alexander Gallery is pleased to announce New York: Stieglitz to Titarenko, an exhibition about the timeless essence of the ever changing city. Included are some thirty black and white and color photographs from 1910 to 2012 by Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, Bruce Davidson, Eleanor Fischer, Louis Faurer, William Klein, Saul Leiter, Evelyn Hofer, George Tice, Harold Roth, William Meyers, Nina Korhonen, and Alexey Titarenko. The exhibition will run from October 17 to December 8, 2012 at the Fuller Building, 41 East 57th Street, Suite 704. Gallery hours are 11am-6pm, Tuesday through Saturday and by appointment. The opening reception will be held on October 17, from 6 to 8pm.

New York City has fascinated generations of photographers. Alfred Stieglitz combined formal perspectives with his romantic imagination to search for “the spirit of that something that endears New York to one who really loves it... the universal thing in it.” Walker Evans rebelled against Stieglitz’s “unwonted earnestness” and created his own “documentary style” pictures of the city. Newcomers like Alexey Titarenko (b. 1962, St. Petersburg, Russia) see New York through their experience in disparate places and with different photographic traditions. Each photographer in the exhibition has his own view of the city, each is enchanted by its secret magic, and somehow a plausible New York emerges from this visual cacophony.
