Review: Paul Himmel at Keith de Lellis Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, July 16, 2009
Updated: Monday, January 13, 2014

Himmel, a New York photographer with a long, vivid career, died in February, at age ninety-four, so the exhibition that he helped plan has become a memorial of sorts—inadequate to his legacy but heartfelt and welcome.

The city, from Harlem to Coney Island, is the show's prime focus, with wonderfully atmospheric shots of Third Avenue under the shadow of the El, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Broadway, all from the nineteen-fifties. A few years earlier, he shot dense crowds surging through Grand Central, always locating the few still points in the agitated blur.
