Focus on Photography


It seems photography is everywhere these days. Whether it's a moody black-and-white or in vivid color, hard-boiled documentary style or inventive fine art, photography continues to capture the fancy of galleries and collectors across the country. Several photography exhibitors will bring their images to International Artexpo New York here is what a few of them will have on display.

THE NEW YORK TIMES PHOTO ARCHIVES

With more than seven million images, The New York Times Photo Archives holds some of file greatest examples of modern journalism. For nearly a century, images from the Photo Archives were used almost exclusively in the news pages of American newspapers. But now The Times' classic photos--on almost every subject, from world events and world leaders to sports, transportation, science, industry lifestyles, landmarks and cities--are available to the public.

Besides its own classic images, The Times offers works from several leading photo agencies, institutions and photographers, including George Eastman House, the New-York Historical Society, the Museum of the City of New York, Magnum Photos, Neil Leifer, Mystic Seaport and Corbis. Photographers included in the archives include Lewis Hine, Berenice Abbott, Robert Capa, Edward S. Curtis, Alfred Stieglitz, Mathew Brady, George Tames and other legends.

The Times produces photographs in all sizes, from 11 by 14 inches up to murals, and offers framing. Its silver-gelatin prints are hand-processed, toned, washed and air-dried using archival guidelines. Each photo is embossed in the lower right-hand corner with the words "The New York Times Photo Collection."
