Fred W. McDarrah: Save the Village Exhibition


Steven Kasher Gallery's exhibition of over 130 rare and iconic vintage prints spanning the years 1958 to 1979 seeks to demonstrate that Fred W. McDarrah was the most curious, knowledgeable, and indefatigable photographer of the New York downtown scene in the second half of the 20th century. Though always relevant to anyone interested in the culture and politics of America, McDarrah's pictures seem especially pertinent now with the recent designation of the expanded South Village Historic District by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, and the film Inside Llewyn Davis being declared Best Picture of the Year by The New York Times. Nobody did more than Fred to save Greenwich Village in our collective visual memory.
