David Fahey’s photograph of Helmut Newton
It is a subject close to our heart. Photography dealers/gallerists’ own photographic works. Now, in all its glory see “Don’t Quit Your Day Job” at the Hasted Kraeutler gallery in Chelsea.
The show’s self-deprecating title seems intended to lower expectations. It announces, in effect, that there is nothing earth-shattering to be found here and that the participants themselves harbor no illusions about their efforts. Do they protest too much? Not really. It turns out that great photographer-dealers in the tradition of Alfred Stieglitz are few and far between.
