THE NEW YORKER

NEW YORK CITY, 1968-1972

A new photography gallery opens in Tribeca with one of the season’s most rewarding shows.  Although the series was his first as a photographer, the black-and-white pictures McDonough made of New Yorkers between 1968 and 1972 merit comparison to the street work of Garry Winogrand, Harry Callahan, or Diane Arbus.  Whether shooting up close or from middle ground, he always seems in synch with the city’s jagged rhythm, and his results feel loose and instinctive–full of exciting, serendipitous connections.  Every expression, every gesture counts, and there’s never a dull moment in McDonough’s Manhattan. Through Nov. 10.
