Fraenkel Gallery

Modern and contemporary art, specializing in photographs.

Since 1979, Fraenkel Gallery has presented more than 350 exhibitions exploring photography and its relation to other arts. The exhibitions have spanned the medium’s history, from its early masters to the present day. The gallery’s first exhibitions investigated the work of Carleton Watkins, Lee Friedlander, and NASA’s lunar photographs, and these set the tone and pattern for what followed. Because photography’s brief history lends itself to examination backward, forward, and sideways in time, the gallery has presented exhibitions by artists as diverse as Bernd & Hilla Becher, Walker Evans, Eugene Atget, Edward Weston, Diane Arbus, Sol LeWitt, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. The gallery is a primary representative for the work of Diane Arbus, Robert Adams, Lee Friedlander, Adam Fuss, Katy Grannan, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Nicholas Nixon, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, and represents the estates of Garry Winogrand and Ralph Eugene Meatyard.
