Congratulations to Gallery photographers Steve Schapiro and Art Shay




Steve Schapiro speaking after receiving the 2017 Lucie Award for Achievement in Photojournalism. Earlier this year the Gallery presented the exhibition "EYEWITNESS" to celebrate the completion of a project based on James Baldwin’s 1963 book, “The Fire Next Time”. Steve Schapiro’s photographs documenting the civil rights movement from 1963 – 1968 are paired with essays from “The Fire Next Time” by James Baldwin in a major book published by Taschen in March. The book won the 2017 Lucie Award for Book Publisher of the Year (Limited).


Art Shay, now 95, speaking after being honored with the Lucie statue for Lifetime Achievement during the Lucie Awards gala ceremony at Carnegie Hall in New York October 29, 2017. Art Shay: A Tribute” is currently on view at Monroe Gallery of Photography through November 19, 2017.


Art Shay brought the crowd to its feet with a rousing harmonica solo to conclude the evening.
