Photographs from Look Magazine at the Museum of the City of New York

In the Museum of the City of New York's smartly packaged book and exhibition "Only in New York: Photographs From Look Magazine," you can see how one publication catered to voracious consumers of images.

Look's founding editor and publisher, Gardner Cowles, created it in 1937, to meet what the magazine called "the tremendous unfilled demand for extraordinary news and feature pictures."

Look, in circulation until 1971, was modeled on European magazines like the French Vu. It was more mainstream than Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, more photo driven than Life, and more New York-centric than all of them.

Read the complete review in The New York Times.
