About Fraenkel Gallery

Since 1979, Fraenkel Gallery has presented almost 300 exhibitions exploring photography and its relation to other arts. The exhibitions have spanned the medium’s history, from its early masters to present day. The gallery’s earliest exhibitions investigated the work of Carleton Watkins, Lee Friedlander, and NASA’s lunar photographs, and these set a tone and pattern for what followed. Because photography’s brief history lends itself to examination backward, forward, and sideways in time, the gallery has presented exhibitions by artists as diverse as Walker Evans, Eugene Atget, Edward Weston, Diane Arbus, the Bechers, Adam Fuss, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Sol LeWitt. The gallery represents the estates of Garry Winogrand, Ralph Eugene Meatyard and is a primary representative for the work of Diane Arbus, Robert Adams, Lee Friedlander, Adam Fuss, Katy Grannan, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Nicholas Nixon, and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

In addition to its museum-quality exhibitions, the gallery has maintained a vigorous publishing program including numerous monographs and exhibition catalogues. In exhibitions such as Open Secrets, Dust Breeding, Not Exactly Photographs, and Nothing and Everything, Fraenkel Gallery has brought together work across media, juxtaposing photographs with paintings, drawings, and sculpture. The gallery maintains long-established relationships with museums, private collectors, and corporations around the world, and welcomes the experienced collector as well as those beginning to consider collecting photographic art.
