Carole Teller’s Changing New York: A Close Up on the Photos and the Photographer

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday January 25

6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM


A conversation with Carole Teller and GVSHP Executive Director Andrew Berman

Salmagundi Club, 47 5th Ave

Carole Teller is an artist and former art teacher who took photos of the Village in her spare time over the last half century. Carole donated a handful of the photos to GVSHP in 2016 on a whim, and we were awestruck.

The photos tell an incredible story of change, from the early 1960s through the early 1990s, with a keen eye for defining characters, places, and events in moments of transformation or disappearance.
When GVSHP added them to our Historic Image Archive ( and shared them with the public, they  became an instant worldwide sensation.

Were these foretelling images carefully chosen or happy accidents?  What caught the photographer’s eye? And how were the subjects and locations of hundreds of these pictures identified, sometimes more than fifty years after they were taken?

Join us for a closer look at the Carole Teller’s collection and for an insightful conversation with Carole.

To celebrate, we’ll be uploading the full Carole Teller collection on our Historic Image Archive for the program!

Prints of the images will be available for sale, with proceeds benefitting GVSHP.
