“Richard Sandler is an American internationally renowned and iconic, street photographer, documentary filmmaker, and photography curator. He was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship for Film-Making in 2006, and two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships in Photography in 1992 and 1998.

Called by Time Magazine, as the “unsung street photographer of 1980s New York.”, Sandler captured the uncpaturable and documented the people of NY— in a pre social media era where such raw documentation, and representation, was, and still is radical. Following a generation of street photography that carried the likes of Diane Arbus, Garry Winogrand, and Lee Friedlander, Sandler’s works capture the streets of NY with new sensitivities to ever changing times.

Sandler’s photographs are in the permanent collections of Brooklyn Museum, Center for Creative Photography – the University of Arizona, Houston Museum of Fine Art, Museum of the City of New York, New York Historical Society, New York Public Library”
