 25th Anniversary Celebration

Laurence Miller Gallery will celebrate a milestone this winter, the silver anniversary of the oldest
continually operating gallery in New York City specializing exclusively in the art of photography.
The twenty-fifth anniversary celebration will kick off with a champagne reception on Saturday, January
10, and will feature over forty photographers who exhibited at the gallery since it opened on 57th Street
in February 1984.

Never content to only show well-known figures in the history of photography, the gallery gave many international photographers their first one-person shows in the United States. Included in this group are Joan Colom from Barcelona, Jakob Tuggener from Zurich, Daido Moriyama from Tokyo , Stephane Couturier from Paris, Peter Bialobrzeski from Hamburg, and DoDo Jin Ming from Beijing and Hong Kong.

For over twenty years the gallery has represented perhaps the finest New York street photographer, 95 year old Helen Levitt.  For twenty-five years the gallery has represented exclusively the elegant and inventive works of Ray K. Metzker, who is only now receiving long overdue international recognition, as his retrospective exhibition travels across Europe .

In addition to the photographers mentioned above, the Anniversary Celebration will include works by Petah Coyne, Lalla Essaydi, Julia Margaret Cameron, Eadweard Muybridge, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Larry Burrows, Michael Spano, David Levinthal, Duane Hanson, Les Krims and many others, all of whom had one-person shows at the Gallery.
