For a show inspired by the German photographer and collector F. C. Gundlach's book of the same name, the gallery pulls pictures from its vast inventory that question the conventional definition of a fashion photograph.

Here, it's broad enough to include a 1922 news photo of Babe Ruth and Bob Meusel looking sporty in newsboy caps, Brassaï's 1932 image of a chic lesbian couple, and Bruce Davidson's shot of a man selling Muhammad Speaks in 1962. Seen alongside some great fashion shots by Avedon, Penn, Steichen, and Gundlach himself, these images of personal style help open up a genre that's always been far more various than it gets credit for.
