Cool photo, right? It’s even more fabulous when you realize that photographer Vera Lutter took this photo while inside a walk-in, pinhole camera. Yes, a walk-in, pinhole camera. Recent Acquisitions: Prints and Photographs opens today at the Stephen A. Schwarzman building at Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street. All of the exhibition photographs and prints on display were obtained by the Library in the last decade. It’s a free exhibition and you can see it whenever the Library is open; stop by if you’re in midtown NYC today or make a trip to see it. It’s worth your time.
