Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, Jerome Liebling, Lee Friedlander, Lisette Model, Dorothea Lange… they all seduced Howard Greenberg, and many of their pieces ended up in his collection, one of the most incredible photo archives in the world. A major figure on the photography market, the New Yorker built up a gold mine of sepia and black and white images over more than 30 years. He got hooked during the ’70s and his purchases mounted up and the discoveries came thick and fast, leading him to found the Centre for Photography at Woodstock, a celebrated gallery that has become a New York institution. From Czech modernists to great Amercian masters, his collection is full of masterpieces, and tells a unique and intimate story of photography at the Fondation Cartier-Bresson.
