Fraenkel Gallery

Modern and contemporary art, specializing in photographs.

Since 1979, Fraenkel Gallery has presented almost 400 exhibitions exploring photography and its relation to other media. The gallery exhibits and publishes significant works of art in a variety of media spanning two centuries. We believe that to understand photographs it helps to see them in light of other objects, and vice versa.

The gallery represents the work of Robert Adams, Sophie Calle, Lee Friedlander, Adam Fuss, Nan Goldin, Katy Grannan, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Nicholas Nixon, Alec Soth, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, and works closely with the estates of Diane Arbus, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Peter Hujar, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, and Garry Winogrand. In recent years, the gallery has expanded its roster to include multidisciplinary artists such as Elisheva Biernoff, Mel Bochner, Kota Ezawa, Martine Gutierrez, Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller, Christian Marclay, Wardell Milan, Richard T. Walker, and Carrie Mae Weems.
