Last few days for the the fashion photography focused exhibit The Heartbeat of Fashion. Some of the best fashion photographers of the last century are featured in 50 photographs here. Works from Brassai, Penn and Avedon along with other modern masters are included. One Penn work is a gem but bring your pocketbook with $160,000 for the privilege of buying it.

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to present The Heartbeat of Fashion As Inspired by F.C. Gundlach. Originally conceived by collector, photographer, and publisher F.C. Gundlach, The Heartbeat of Fashion illustrates the history of fashion photography in the broadest sense and documents how fashion is a central part of our lives. It re-examines the role of the fashion photograph and the ways in which fashion reflects the ideas and attitudes of the times. Fashion and the fashion photograph are broadly interpreted as more than just a means to sell clothing; they have to anticipate trends and visualize ideas through images that are identifiable. "The catwalks of the world are no longer to be found in the protected zones of the fashion metropolises; they have moved onto the streets and into the living-rooms, kitchens and bedrooms of our society," notes Gundlach.

Wander through the pages of Vogue and other famous publications from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s spying op art and haute couture blended in light and shadow. A fitting follow-up to last years ICP focus on fashion photography.

Now through Saturday April 24 : Howard Greenberg
