Location:  Central Gallery

Beyond Words: Photography in The New Yorker is an exhibition of more than 100 works by 65 different photographers from across the globe. Although the material has been gathered from a wide range of sources—including studios, galleries, archives and private collections—and periods (from 1890 to 2010) every image was published in The New Yorker during a formative period in the magazine’s history, from 1992 to 2010. The work in this exhibition was selected by co-curators Elisabeth Biondi and Cay Sophie Rabinowitz exclusively for UCCA.
