Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce Sexy and the City, a summer group show on view from Thursday, July 9, through Friday, August 28, 2009.
Sexy and the City
shows the alluring, romantic and sometimes scandalous side of New
York’s people and places. Capturing private, intimate moments and
blatant displays of sexuality, these photographs span the decades from
the 1940s to the present day, taken in landmark locations like the
Brooklyn Bridge and in the quiet, out-of-the-way corners of the city.
Alfred Eisenstaedt’s iconic image of a kissing couple in Times Square
on V-J Day, 1945, to Nan Goldin’s drag queen on an anonymous New York
street in the 1990s, from Garry Winogrand’s topless woman surrounded by
a crowd in Central Park to the homosexual couples photographed by Alvin
Baltrop in the seclusion of the West Side piers, Sexy and the City celebrates diverse views of New York City passion.
the artists featured in the exhibition are Merry Alpern, Will Anderson,
Diane Arbus, Alvin Baltrop, Bruce Davidson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Mitch
Epstein, Louis Faurer, Leonard Freed, Nan Goldin, Gail Albert Halaban,
Charles Harbutt, Lisa Kereszi, André Kertész, Arthur Leipzig, Leon
Levinstein, Joel Meyerowitz, Duane Michals, Tod Papageorge, Frank
Paulin, Anton Perich, Charles Traub, Arthur Tress, Weegee, Ryan
Weideman, and Garry Winogrand.
This show is part of the
citywide exhibition NEW YORK PHOTOGRAPHS. A number of galleries

City. Other participating galleries include Bonni Benrubi, Danziger
