NEW YORK, West Village, New York (February 14, 2023) – Salmagundi of New York is proud to present Birthday Suit: An Artful Exploration of Nude Photography from February 21 to April 21, 2023. This exhibition highlights the talents of Salmagundi photography members and two specially selected non-member artists, showcasing the beauty and complexities of the human form through the art of nude photography.

the human experience,” says William “Bill” Eric Indursky, chair of the curator committee at Salmagundi. “This exhibition is a celebration of the art form and its evolution, showcasing the works of both established and emerging photographers.”
