25-year Retrospective at the Midtown Y

In 1972, The Midtown Y Photography Gallery was opened, raising quite a few eyebrows in the process (photography was not yet a bona fide art medium, at least not in the eyes of art dealers). For the next 25 years, the gallery would become a stronghold for traditional fine art photography, and be assailed (but never invaded) by the trends of post-modernism. The Midtown Y held true to realism until its closing.

Now the New York Public Library has unveiled an exhibition of images, entitled "Making the Scene: The Midtown Y Photography Gallery, 1972-1996." The New York Times has an article here.
