This photo gallery moved from downtown Manhattan to Santa Fe after 9/11, and there's an interesting dissonance in finding many of the 20th century's most famous (and infamous) photojournalism prints on a quiet Santa Fe street. The gallery represents some 50 photographers or their estates, and you'll see everything from original prints of Eddie Adams's famous shot of a Vietnam policeman executing a Vietcong prisoner to Joe Rosenthal's Iwo Jima flag raising. It also hosts as many as six shows a year; a 2007 Steve Schapiro retrospective included shots of Edie Sedgwick cavorting with Andy Warhol, Martin Luther King in Alabama, and Truman Capote sitting on a bed. You'll find exceptional works by luminaries such as Margaret Bourke-White, Sebastião Salgado, Harry Benson, and Jacques-Henri Lartigue, and a collection of AP and Life magazine photographers. Heady stuff, even if you don't want to buy.

Open daily 10 am to 5 pm.
