Some upcoming events at the International Center for Photography are of great interest to me. Both opening on January 29th and running through May 9th, are Parisian and black and white. Wonderful for winter in New York. Hopefully I'll be able to make it on a Friday when admission is Pay What You Wish from 10am - 8pm. Otherwise, general admission is $10, $8 for students. Open weekends. 1133 Avenue of the Americas, at 43rd Street.

Archivist of Paris
A retospective of Eugène Atget's (1857–1927) work selected from the ICP's permanent collection curated by Christopher Phillips. Each of his pictures of Paris were a "part of a much larger body of work that reflected Atget's systematic documentation of the historic streets, buildings, and artifacts of Old Paris."
