Manhattan Noon: Photographs by Gus Powell

Museum of the City of New York
Exhibition: Dec. 15, 2007 – May 18, 2008

From mcny.org:

The midday meanderings of New Yorkers on their lunch breaks, famously captured by Frank O’Hara in his 1964 collection Lunch Poems, are the subject of Manhattan Noon, the first large-scale New York presentation of the recent photographs of Gus Powell. The exhibition features some 30 color images, taken by Powell during his lunch hour, that capture the city’s inhabitants in, as O’Hara wrote, “the noisy splintered glare of a Manhattan noon.”
