The Museum of the City of New York celebrates the four-hundredth anniversary of the settlement of the original Dutch colonies in New York with "Dutch Seen: New York Rediscovered," an exhibition of works by twelve Dutch photographers, most residents of the city, who explore our shared history.


The result, "Dutch Seen: New York Rediscovered," is, inevitably perhaps, a hodgepodge—uneven but vivacious and full of feeling. Most of the photographers chose to focus on people, establishing an emotional common ground. Rineke Dijkstra's Coney Island bathers and Hellen van Meene's barefoot young girls capture the combination of fragility and flintiness that the city values most.
