Matt Weber Exhibition
March 30 – May 20, 2013
Harper's Books is pleased to announce the gallery's third exhibition with contemporary photographer Matt Weber. Working largely with black-and-white film and almost entirely in the unstaged setting of New York’s streets, Weber has cultivated an instantly recognizable aesthetic rooted in the spontaneous relationships between city and subject. This exhibition will present an informal retrospective of his most compelling street-based images from the last twenty-five years.
Henri Cartier-Bresson: Tokyo 1966
May 25 – July 7, 2013
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 25: 7–10pm
Harper's Books is pleased to present an exhibition of rare vintage prints of Henri Cartier-Bresson's photographs from the 1950s and '60s. Originally included in the photographer's first major Japanese exhibition at the Shinjuku Keiô Department Store in Tokyo, curated by Robert Delpire, these images constitute an eclectic selection of seminal photographs and lesser-known works.
Most people come to the Hamptons to take advantage of our beautiful beaches and revel in the glorious summer light. Artists, writers, thinkers, financiers, and wine barons have long been drawn to this area for its fertile soil and creative spirit. In the past few years East Hampton has seen a cultural revival, with several new galleries and book stores springing up around town. We moved into our present location in October 2010, carrying on the literary and artistic traditions that have flourished at 87 Newtown Lane since 1992. Visitors are encouraged and cared for year round. An espresso or prosecco awaits, as does a gallery filled with cool books and art.
