Formerly a photographer, Howard Greenberg has been one of a group of gallerists, curators and historians responsible for the creation and development of the modern market for photography. Howard Greenberg Gallery - founded in 1981 - was the first to consistently exhibit photojournalism and 'street' photography, now accepted as important components of photographic art. After 17 years in the downtown district of Soho, the gallery moved to midtown New York in 2003.
