    Back to Past Exhibitions

    The streets of London and New York come to life in this exhibition and companion installation.

    London Street Photography, organized by the Museum of London, features images by some 70 photographers of fleeting moments of ordinary people in London – at work, in transit, in public spaces, and in neighborhoods. A companion installation by the Museum of the City of New York, City Scenes: Highlights of New York Street Photography, provides a counterpart, focusing on various photographers from the 1890s Progressive Era of Jacob Riis to the contemporary age of Joel Meyerowitz.

    Sponsors

    The presentation of London Street Photography and "City Scenes: Highlights of New York Street Photography" at the Museum of the City of New York is made possible by the generous support of Mary and Marvin Davidson, Ronay and Richard L. Menschel, the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Joyce F. Menschel, and Robert Menschel.
