He Captured a Clandestine Gay Culture Amid the Derelict Piers
Alvin Baltrop’s photographs of the abandoned Hudson River piers and the people who populated them in the 1970s and ’80s have been all but ignored. Until now.
Yet you find little sense of menace in the photographs, most of which are black and white, with a few in color. Raw, cavernous interiors have a church-like luminosity. And, despite repeated images of bare flesh the work can feel erotic but chaste, the way Tho… [+2365 chars]

In 1939, the Museum of Modern Art opened its first purpose-built home on West 53rd Street, a taut, rectangular, six-story International Style palazzo clad in Thermolux glass and panels of milky white marble. Stylish and surprisingly homey, the building, desi… [+872 chars]

Jill Freedman, Photographer Who Lingered in the Margins, Dies at 79
She immersed herself in the rougher precincts of American life for months at a time, portraying their denizens as noble but not necessarily heroic.
