While at the NY Photo Festival in DUMBO, we visited the Henry Gregg Gallery where the Director Henry Reed guided us through the current exhibit “In The Zone”.

HGG’s new show deftly mingles iconic photographs by Robert Frank, Gordon Parks and Russian avantgardist Aleksandr Rodchenko with sepia-tone masterworks by Georgi Zelma (1906-84), the pioneering
Russian photojournalist of the "Eastern Front" school alongside dramatic contemporary Roman cityscapes
with crackled surfaces by Balazs Turay. and classic Americana views through the lens of Jim Megargee,professor, author, master printer and documentarian.

One “find” from this visit was the work of Turay, an artist Henry Reed reviewed at ICP when working a portfolio invitational critique position. The work is very strong and has a very atmospheric feel to it. Great use of grain and texture in promoting that sensibility.

The other classic artists represented are additional reasons to visit this particular exhibition. Great prints with excellent execution.

Now through June 27: Henry Gregg Gallery
