Nailya Alexander, Director Nailya Alexander Gallery specializes in Russian vintage (1920s-1950s) and contemporary photography. The gallery also shows contemporary artists from both Europe and the United States. The gallery’s focus has been the rediscovery of lesser known yet significant periods and artists in the history of photography, and prides itself on its dedication to gallery artists and its support of emerging talent. For over fifteen years, Nailya Alexander Gallery has mounted museum-quality exhibitions such as Staging Happiness: The Formation of Socialist Realist Photography (2004), Alexander Zhitomirsky: Photomontages 1931-1973 (2005), Turkestan: Orientalism in Soviet Avant-Garde Photography (2006), Iraq: Scars and Exile (2008), Light of Modernity in Buenos Aires: 1929-1954 (2011) and George Tice: 60 Years of Photography (2013). Gallery exhibitions have been reviewed consistently in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Guardian, the Wall Street Journal, ARTnews, and Art in America. Nailya Alexander represents the Arkady Shaikhet and Max Penson Estates, and has been a member of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) since 2000.
