Limelight A Greenwich Village Photography Gallery and Coffeehouse in the Fifties by Helen Gee
In the late 1950s, the Limelight gallery and coffeehouse was the intellectual hangout of Greenwich Village, drawing patrons and critics with the work of such figures as Minor White, Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Brassaï, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Robert Frank. When Limelight opened in 1954, it was the first commercial gallery in the U.S. devoted exclusively to photography. Limelight: A Greenwich Village Photography Gallery and Coffeehouse in the Fifties is the humorous and at times heartbreaking memoir of founder Helen Gee. Aperture is pleased to reissue it and make it newly available as an e-book.
