Paul McDonough Exhibition
Sasha Wolf’s new gallery in Tribeca is opening with an exhibition is of Paul McDonough’s New York street work from 1968-1972.
McDonough arrived in New York in 1967 with a 35mm camera and an entrée – through childhood friend Tod Papageorge – into the photography workshops and social networks of street photographer Garry Winogrand.
Emerging from an early career as a studio easel painter, McDonough found photographing on the streets liberating. “It satisfied my sketching impulses,” he said. “… I learned to carry a camera everywhere, all the time, loaded with 400-speed film.”
This show is a must-see for all lovers of street photography. We recommend heading down to 10 Leonard Street, Tribeca, New York before the show ends on 10th November.
