New York gallery owner Howard Greenberg has made his remarkable private photography collection available to the public at the Henri Cartier Bresson Foundation, in Paris. In the 60′s Greenberg began collecting photographs by the thousands. Late in the 70′s he established the non-profit about his fascinating background and story on their photography blog, LENS.

From modernists of the Czech school (Drtikol, Rössler, Funke) to photographers of the FSA (Lange, Evans) via the humanists (Hine, Seymour) and American masters (Callahan, Frank, Winogrand), this is a personal history of photography. Among the selection in this exhibition are prints of exceptional quality by majorphotographers who are sometimes overlooked, such as Roy DeCarava, Leon Levinstein and Ralph Eugene Meatyard.
