The Week Ahead @ The Henry

Just two weeks left to see Out [o] Fashion Photography: Embracing Beauty! This long-running exhibition, guest curated by Deborah Willis, Ph.D., Henry Visiting Fellow and Chair of the Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, closes September 1. If you haven’t seen the show yet or want to revisit some of your favorites, now’s the time. Do you have a piece you can’t stop thinking about? Cindy Sherman? Diane Arbus? Nic Nicosia? Carrie Mae Weems?
