Henry M. Buhl

This summer, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will feature Speaking with Hands, an exhibition of 175 photographs devoted to the subject of hands, all from Henry M. Buhl's collection. In just over ten years, Buhl has gathered more than a thousand images representing every period in the history of photography as well as various genres: photojournalism, fine-art, and scientific. Buhl's downtown Manhattan loft serves as his office, residence, and a gallery for his photographs, which are reinstalled on a revolving basis every few months, as well as for eclectic furnishings, sculptures, books, and myriad curiosities and objects.
