Frank Oscar Larson: 1950s New York Street Stories
Queens Museum of Art
February 5 through May 20, 2012
An auditor by trade, Greenpoint-native Frank Oscar Larson spent his spare time behind the camera, capturing street life in New York City. His "1950s New York Street Stories" are drawn from a recently discovered cache of negatives found in his daughter-in-law's Maine home. Images of Chinatown, the LES, and more make up the extraordinary collection that will be on view from next month. A must for anyone with a photo fetish of their own, and for those with an undying love of the Big Apple.
