Howard Greenberg Family Gallery

First dedicated in 2005, this gallery focuses on the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art’s extensive photography holdings, which include both the museum’s own permanent collection and the collection of the Center for Photography at Woodstock which is housed at the SDMA. Works on view will include major recent acquisitions, including two rare issues of Alfred Stieglitz’s magazine Camera Work. The collections span a broad cross-section of the history of photography, from 19th century images of the Adirondacks by Seneca Ray Stoddard and Pictorialist portraits by Eva Watson Schütze, to work by renowned mid-20th century photographers such as Aaron Siskind, Edward Steichen, Josef Sudek, Sid Grossman, and Weegee, to significant bodies of work by more contemporary figures like Larry Fink, Mark Goodman, Joel Meyerowitz, and Allen Ginsberg.
