Since its inception over thirty-five ago, Howard Greenberg Gallery has built a vast collection of the most important photographs in the medium. The Gallery's collection acts as a living history of photography, offering genres and styles from Pictorialism to Modernism, in addition to contemporary photography. Maintaining diverse and extensive holdings of photographic prints, the gallery includes such masters as Eugène Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, André Kertész, William Klein, Gordon Parks, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, Josef Sudek, and Edward Weston on its roster of artists. More recent additions include Edward Burtynsky, Jungjin Lee, Joel Meyerowitz, Vivian Maier, and Alex Majoli.
Formerly a photographer and founder of The Center for Photography in Woodstock in 1977, Howard Greenberg has been one of a small group of gallerists, curators and historians responsible for the creation and development of the modern market for photography. Howard Greenberg Gallery—founded in 1981 and originally known as Photofind—was the first to consistently exhibit photojournalism and 'street' photography, now accepted as important components of photographic art.
After nearly 17 years in Soho, Howard Greenberg Gallery moved to The Fuller Building, at 41 East 57th Street, in 2003. Consistent with its former downtown space, the midtown gallery reflects the need for a flexible yet intimate space where multiple exhibitions can be presented simultaneously.
