Since 1981, the Staley-Wise Gallery has been one of New York’s most renowned art galleries. Etheleen Staley and Takouhy Wise have made photography their specialty. For their inaugural exhibition 111 Wooster Street, they chose to highlight the work of Horst P. Horst. Certainly one of the greatest American fashion photographers. In 1990, the gallery moved. She moved to 100 Crosby Street, in a neo-Greek style building which was none other than the work of architect Thomas Stent.
This art gallery is internationally recognized. Its prestige is due to the quality of the photographic work it represents. It is a reference for amateurs, since it manages the body of work of 63 photographers. Among them, the greatest masters: Richard Avedon, Robert Doisneau, David Lachapelle, Bob Richardson … Her fame leads her to collaborate very regularly with public and private institutions, but also art foundations.
The current exhibition is celebrating the work of two female photographers. “2 Women of Style: Louise Dahl-Wolfe and Stephanie Pfriender Stylander” was launched on March 5. Two talented women from two different eras. More than 30 years apart, two visions of fashion photography.
