In 2009 the MFAH acquired 100 black and white photographs by the American street photographer Simpson Kalisher, given by Gloria Richards, a constant supporter of the artist‘s work. In celebration of the gift, 59 of the photographs will be on view in Simpson Kalisher: The Alienated Photographer. The photographs document every day scenes primarily from the 1950s and ‘60s and capture the social landscape of New York.
