Rudy Burckhardt (April 6, 1914 – August 1, 1999) is best known for his photography of New York and other cities. His signature image explores the quirks of modern urban life, in particular the exuberant life of the streets from the perspective of the pedestrian. He is also celebrated for canonical portraits of New York artists at work, and for his film and collaborations with leading artists, poets and musicians of the New York School. This exhibition, however, shows the private, meditative, less known side of Burkhardt's creative personality, what guest curator Vincent Katz describes as "that essential base of solace that facilitated the cosmpolitan flâneur."
