On view at Salmagundi Club, Birthday Suit: An Artful Exploration of Nude Photography. This exhibition highlights the talents of Salmagundi photography members and two specially selected non-member artists, showcasing the beauty and complexities of the human form through the art of nude photography.

“Nude photography is one of the oldest genres in the history of photography, and it continues to be a powerful means of exploring the human experience,” says William “Bill” Eric Indursky, chair of the curator committee at Salmagundi. “This exhibition is a celebration of the art form and its evolution, showcasing the works of both established and emerging photographers.”

The exhibition features a diverse range of works.  The show will be held in Salmagundi’s Photography on 2, the second floor of the historic club’s townhouse in the heart of the West Village.

Two of the selected non-member artists joining the show are Hal Hirshorn who makes 21st-century photographs using 19th-century materials and Lynn Bianchi an fine art photographer and multimedia artist best known for her nude photographic series Heavy In White.

Birthday Suit: An Artful Exploration of Nude Photography will be on view to April 22, 2023 at Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Avenue between 11th/12th Streets, NYC. All exhibitions are free and open to the public.
