Fodor's Expert Review International Center of Photography

Lower East Side Museum/Gallery

Founded in 1974 by photojournalist Cornell Capa (photographer Robert Capa's brother), this museum continues to put on exhibitions that explore the timely social and political aspects of photojournalism. While the institution has a collection of over 150,000 original prints spanning the history of photography from daguerreotypes to large-scale pigment prints, the public space here, in the first-floor and basement galleries, is devoted to temporary exhibitions. There's a small gift shop and café as well. It's pay-what-you-wish on Thursday night 6–9 pm. You can buy a combination ticket ($27 for same-day visit; available Wed.–Sun.) with the New Museum across the street.
