Blink and you'll miss this amazing portrait photography exhibition in New York City.

"Georgia O'Keeffe" by Alfred Stieglitz; and "Tell Me What You're Thinking" by Mickalene Thomas

 

Fusing image with identity making, portrait photography on view at this year's edition of The Photography Show will range from selections from contemporaries including Alejandro Gonzalez, Lissa Rivera and Mickalene Thomas (her portrait, Tell Me What You're Thinking is featured in the exhibition), to such legendary icons as Alfred Stieglitz, who was the partner of iconic painter Georgia O'Keeffe, who is also featured in The Photography Show. Powerful and poignant, these images reveal the strengths and vulnerabilities of their subjects while evoking timeless narratives about desire, beauty, and freedom. 

 

 

Featuring more than 115 of the world's leading fine art photography galleries presenting contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as new media, the Show's expanded program will include special curated loan exhibitions including The Light in Cuban Eyes from the private collection of Madeleine Plonsker.

When: March 30 to April 2
