Museum of the City of New York, 1220 5th Ave & 103rd St, New York

Admission: $15 and up | $10 for Museum members
Following World War II, Detroit-born Navy photographer Todd Webb moved to New York City and took pictures of the city’s residents, booming waterfront, and rising skyline. Webb’s pictures show a city alive with hope, industry, and peace. But what does it mean to capture the spirit of a city? And why has Webb’s oeuvre faded from public view compared to his peers? A panel of authors and curators examines the world of street photography in the 1940s and 50s — and Webb’s legacy within it.
