Manhattan Noon: Photographs by Gus Powell
Dec 15th 2007 – Mar 16th 2008

The Museum of The City of New York
1220 Fifth Avenue at 103rd Street
New York, NY 10029

This, the first large-scale New York presentation of Gus Powell’s recent photographs, illuminates the midday meanderings of New Yorkers on their lunch breaks – famously captured by Frank O’Hara in his 1964 collection Lunch Poems.

The exhibition features some 40 color images, taken by Powell during his lunch hour, that capture the city’s inhabitants in, as O’Hara wrote, “the noisy splintered glare of a Manhattan noon.”

The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 10AM to 5PM.

Manifesto

In-Public was set up in 2000 to provide a home for Street Photographers.

Our aim is to promote Street Photography and to continue to explore its possibilities, we are a non commercial collective. All the photographers featured here have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday and to capture the moment. The pictures remind us that, if we let it, over-familiarity can make us blind to what’s really going on in the world around us.
