Stephen Daiter Gallery offers fine contemporary and vintage examples of important American and European photography from the 20th- and 21st-centuries.
"Focusing on classic 20th century experimental and social documentary photography, Stephen Daiter Gallery has a particular expertise on the Photo League in New York (1936-1951) and the early years of The Institute of Design in Chicago (1937-1967). Lisette Model was an important artist in the mid-century New York photography scene. She was a member of the Photo League during the 1940s, a revered educator at the New School for Social Research (1951 until her death), and a central figure at the Limelight Gallery, an important meeting place for photographers in New York City during the 1950s. This portfolio is a cross-section of her work made in France during the 1930s and in New York during the 1940s." - Stephen Daiter
