New York is a truly iconic city, one of the few cities as easily recognisable to people whom have never been there as those who live there.
Its people, streets and buildings are forever imprinted on our collective consciousness through a thousand and one famous images from films, television, newspapers and magazines.
The exhibition 'New York, New York' features a range of work on this most photogenic of cities from anonymous newspaper photographers of the 1930s to contemporary work by artists such as Abelardo Morell and Horst Hamann.
The main photographer featured is Ernst Haas, one of the most celebrated and influential photographers of the last century. An Austrian who moved to the US in 1951, he worked mainly as a photojournalist for magazines such as LIFE, Vogue and Der Stern and was invited to become a member of the Magnum Agency.
He became well-known for his movie set photography documenting the making of such films as "The Third Man", "The Misfits" and "West Side Story", but it is for his images of New York that he is most celebrated, particularly a series of revolutionary colour images documenting the city. In 1953 LIFE Magazine dedicated two issues to the photographs and ten years later the Museum of Modern Art dedicated its first ever colour photography show to the work.
Other photographer's work featured in the exhibition includes: Ted Croner's images of New York at its dazzling night time best – a blur of chrome and lights and George Tice's beautifully composed views of New York from his native New Jersey.
Contemporary work includes images from Horst Hamann's Verticals of New York series, Paul Flaggman's images of New York at night from the City After Dark series, Abelardo Morell's highly acclaimed Camera Obsura images of New York viewed upside down and Christoph Morlinghaus' striking images of New York's monumental urban landscape.
'New York, New York' runs from 24 January to 19 March at Crane Kalman Brighton, 38 Kensington Gardens, North Laine, Brighton.
