As New York City developed into how we see it today – one of the most thriving metropolises in the world – several photographers were making a name for themselves by photographing this progress. These artists are now categorized in what is called “The New York School Photographers.” Their photos capture the astonishing architectural achievements of the city, as well as everyday street life, mainly during the 1930s through 50s. The portfolios of the artists responsible for these photos (i.e. Berenice Abbott, William Witt) are composed of classic and timeless images that capture the history of a city.
