The Art Show: Gala at the Park Avenue Armory, March 1, 2016


Jill Krementz is a legend among New York press photographers, not to mention charmed partygoers and museum exhibition previewers. The subject of over 33 monographs, she is perhaps best known for her canonical images of countless stars of the cultural firmament.  John Updike described one collection, The Writer’s Desk, in his preface, as “A dangerous book–deadly to keep on your desk as her compelling photos of authors at work will lure you back again and again, leaving your own writing untended.” But her scope extends well beyond portraiture. She spent a year in Vietnam during the Vietnam War while her images of the March on the Pentagon made the covers of the New York Times magazine and Time in the same week. Covering a less tumultuous scene, she has for several years now filed her column, “Jill Krementz Photo Journal” at New York Social Diary.  artcritical is humbled that Krementz should turn her lens for us to the gala opening last night of the Art Show, organized by the Art Dealers Association of America at the Park Avenue Armory.
