    New York - Which galleries?

    Next week, I will be travelling to the US, visiting a dear friend of mine. He lives in NJ and we will certainly make several day trips to New York. Now I would like to visit some galleries/exhibitions and see some great photographs "in person". Are there some places you can recommend?

    And, just in case I run out of film (which is unlikely to happen because I got a large freestyle order sent directly to him beforehand - LOL), where can I get good film (b&w medium format, preferably Neopan Acros or TriX)?

    TIA

    Hi Sandra,

    There is the Edward Weston exhibit at The Hecksher Museum Of Art.
    That's on Long Island, and easy to get there by the Long Island Railroad.

    There are a number of interesting galleries in the Chelsea area, around 23rd to 25th street or so, way over on the westside. I'd also say a trip to NYC would not be complete without going to a museum or two, and the Museum of Modern Art has an excellent photography department. http://www.moma.org/

    Another great resource is a publication called Photograph, and can generally be found for free at just about any gallery. They list just about every photography show in the US, with a large NYC section, and the listings can also be found online so you can plan what to see before. http://www.photographmag.com/

    Have fun!

    There are many, three come to mind: International Center of Photography, John Stevenson Gallery and Throckmorton Fine Art.

    Thank you so much for those nice tips! Looks like I should stay longer than just 2 weeks to see all those great exhibitions and places ;-)
    This is my first trip to the US and I am so excited and happy.
