New exhibit at Hunter showcases top photography
On Friday, a new exhibit featuring photography from the New York Times Magazine opens at the Hunter. For over 30 years, the magazine has featured a wide variety of photographic work, with everything from photojournalism to fashion to portraiture. This exhibit focuses primarily on notable projects from the last 15 years.
Materials from different stages of the magazine’s commissioning process—such as storyboards, shot lists, videos, tear sheets and framed prints—will be on display, revealing the collaboration necessary to transform an idea into a finished layout.
The magazine provides a rare opportunity for printed visual storytelling and encourages crossover between artistic disciplines. As New York Times Magazine Photo Editor Kathy Ryan explained, the publication “is often at its best when we bring photographers to projects that fall outside their usual borders.” The exhibit will feature 35 artists from across the globe, including Sebastião Salgado, Gregory Crewdson and Ryan McGinley.
The exhibit will be on view through March 22. General admission is $9.95 for adults and $4.95 for children over 3 years old. If you plan to visit the Hunter on the next Free First Sunday, be aware that a $5 admission will be required to view this particular exhibit.
