Leonard Freed, Wall Street, New York City, 1956.
Magnum Photos has opened a newly curated show of early Magnum photographs at the National Arts Club, a private club on Gramercy Park in New York City. Many of the prints are for sale at reasonable prices.
A signed print of Dennis Stock's James Dean in New York City, 1955,
is the most expensive print in the show, at $9,500.
There are classic prints by Eve Arnold, Dennis Stock, Erich Hartmann, Elliott Erwitt, Bruce Davidson, Inge Morath, Leonard Freed, Cornell Capa, and others. The show notices quote Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson on the show's subject, the city: "New York is a state of mind. It’s about vitality and taking chances and the surprise. It’s vibrant, sexy, beautiful, ugly, and depressing."
George Rodger, The Empire State Building observation deck

The National Arts Club is open to the public from 10 to 5 weekdays. There is no charge for admission.
