Review: Paul Himmel at Keith de Lellis Gallery
Originally conceived as a 95th birthday celebration, this show became a memorial tribute when the photographer died shortly before the opening.
However, Himmel, who took his last photograph in 1967, was involved in preparing the show, itself another indication of the belated recognition of his work that began in 1999 with the publication of "Photographs."
The largest of the black and white pictures is "Brooklyn Bridge, c. 1950," 60-by-48 inches, an image of a solitary man in an overcoat and fedora leaning on the iron railing of the bridge's pedestrian walkway, looking out at the humbling skyline of the city.
