Overview Edit

Since 1979, Fraenkel Gallery has presented almost 300 exhibitions exploring photography and its relation to other arts. The exhibitions have spanned the medium's history, from its early masters to the present day. The gallery's earliest exhibitions investigated the works of Carlton Watkins, Lee Friedlander, and NASA's lunar photographs.

In addition to its museum-quality exhibitions, the gallery has published numerous monographs and exhibition catalogues. In exhibitions such as Open Secrets, Dust Breeding, and Not Exactly Photographs, Fraenkel Gallery has brought together work across media, juxtaposing photographs with paintings, drawings, and sculpture. The gallery maintains long-established relationships with museums, private collectors, and corporations around the world, and welcomes the experienced collector as well as those beginning to consider collecting photographs.[1]
