Closing: “Chance Encounters” at the Corcoran

The Corcoran exhibit “Chance Encounters” looks at street photography by such masters as Lee Friedlander, who took this 1963 picture in New York City. Photograph courtesy of the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

“Chance Encounters: Photographs From the Collection of Norman Carr and Carolyn Kinder Carr” closes June 22. With one exception—Paul Strand’s black-and-white portrait of his wife—this is street photography. Collector Norman Carr says of these works, “The world of the picture is both the public one of the street where the picture was taken and the private one of the subconscious where the composition was formed.” It’s a small show—two rooms of tiny moments caught by the camera in the hands of Diane Arbus, Harry Callahan, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, Weegee, and others. Catch it before it's gone.
