An auction to be held at Swann Auction Galleries in Manhattan on February 14th will feature historic photos that capture the essence of New York City through the ages. The event, titled “Icons & Images: Photographs & Photobooks,” will put up for bid everything from classics from 19th century portraiture to Edgar Allan Poe tintypes to Nan Goldin’s evocative images of 1990s NYC. This will also be a rare opportunity to own a contemporaneous print of Lewis W. Hine’s dramatic “Empire State Building,” (c. 1930).
