Celebrating the City: Recent Photography Acquisitions from the Joy of Giving Something Foundation highlights a gift that has dramatically advanced the Museum’s already stellar photography collection. Juxtaposing striking recent images with work by some of the 20th century’s most important photographers, including the Museum’s first images by Robert Frank and William Klein, the exhibition is a moving celebration of the power of photography to capture New York and New Yorkers.
