Howard Greenberg

Howard Greenberg - Howard Greenberg Gallery

Howard Greenberg is one of the world's foremost photography dealers. He is an authority on 19th and 20th century photography, and has been an acknowledged leader of establishing its value on the fine art market. In recognition of these efforts, and his matchless collection of more than 30,000 photographs, American Photo magazine proclaimed Greenberg one of the 25 most important people in photography in 2005.

Employing his keen eye for artistic value and a unique historical perspective, Greenberg has built a reputation for rediscovering significant photographers from the past and establishing a market for their work. He represents and exhibits photographs by many of the acknowledged masters, including Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Walker Evans, William Klein, Bruce Davidson, Saul Leiter, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. Greenberg also represents the estates of Edward Steichen, Arnold Newman, Roman Vishniac, Martin Munkacsi, and the vintage print archive of Time/Life. More recently, Greenberg has added mid-career contemporary artists to the gallery’s roster including Edward Burtynsky, David Goldblatt, and Frank Gohkle.

Since the gallery’s inception, Greenberg has published more than 40 photographic catalogues and books. The gallery is currently working on a long-term series of publications with Gerhard Steidl and Lumiere Press.

In 1977, Greenberg founded the still active Center for Photography in Woodstock, a non-profit gallery and educational institution. In 1981, he entered the commercial side of photography by establishing the Photofind Gallery, which exhibited and sold prints. In 1986, he moved Photofind from Woodstock to New York City. Five years later, the Photofind Gallery became the Howard Greenberg Gallery. In September 2003, after 18 years in SoHo, Howard Greenberg moved his gallery to the Fuller Building at 41 East 57th Street.
