Gallery FIFTY ONE will be celebrating its 25th anniversary throughout 2024 and 2025.
Gallery FIFTY ONE, a beacon in the world of photographic arts, is delighted to announce its 25th- anniversary year with an upcoming exhibition titled “Street Chronicles,” showcasing a diverse range of groundbreaking street photography. The exhibition will open on Saturday, February 24th.
“Street Chronicles” in Gallery FIFTY ONE brings together an extraordinary collection of works by some of the most influential street photographers of our time, including Harry Gruyaert, Daido Moriyama, William Klein, Helen Levitt, Ray K. Metzker, Saul Leiter, and many more. This exhibition is a narrative journey through the lens of street photography. What the works have in common is that they all depict slices of life in a city. You see people waiting, going somewhere, and you wonder where they are headed and what they are doing. These images capture the universality of urban life.
The raw energy and candid moments captured in ‘Street Chronicles’ are a testament to the enduring power of street photography. Our 25th anniversary is the perfect occasion to celebrate this dynamic art form that has been an integral part of our gallery’s journey.
Since its inception in 1999, Gallery FIFTY ONE has been at the forefront of showcasing contemporary photography, including street photography. The gallery has been instrumental in bringing to light the works of emerging photographers alongside established masters.
Visitors to “Street Chronicles” can expect to be transported into the everyday yet extraordinary moments of life on the streets, captured in diverse styles and perspectives.
