    Perhaps the most widely published and least understood visual record of 20th century performing arts, the output of the Vandamm Studio has largely been utilized only as illustrated backdrop for the retelling of Broadway history. The prints, contact sheets, and negatives of theatre, music, and dance in London (1908 – 1923) and New York (1924 – 1963) are among the Library for the Performing Arts’ most requested treasures. Few are aware that the visionary photographer and portraitist who gave her talent and name to the studio was a woman.

    With a career spanning over five decades, Florence Vandamm was a pioneer and one of the most prolific and widely published female commercial photographers of the early 20th century. The exhibition is based on the Vandamm Collection, which she assembled from negatives, contact and key sheets, and prints when the Studio closed in 1962, and transferred to The Library. Artifacts from the Vandamm Collection, complemented by additional prints, publications and promotional material from performers and producers in the Library’s extensive iconography of 20th century performance, reveal her over 50 years as a professional photographer (1908 – 1963), and the 40 year existence of the Vandamm Studio.

Featured in the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts exhibit are his photographs of Ian McKellan, Maggie Smith, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the legendary partnership of Rudolph Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn, and, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of their stardom, The Beatles.

    Leader Dr. Anne Klaeysen will host a discussion on... Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo.

    Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo makes the bewildering age of global change and inequality real for us by telling the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents are hopeful. Even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams. But then tragedy strikes: recession rocks the city, and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, and economic envy turn brutal. With intelligence, humor, and deep insight this book, based on years of uncompromising reporting, carries the reader headlong into one of the 21st century’s hidden worlds –and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.

    There is no charge for members; the public's suggested donation is $5.

    Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead (212-874-5210 x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.
