Paris Photo 2023: Fred W. McDarrah

MUUS is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition “Fred W. McDarrah: Pride and Protest” curated by Vince Aletti at this year’s Paris Photo fair.  

As the resident photographer for the Village Voice, Fred W. McDarrah photographed some of the most pivotal moments in American history. When an uprising broke out at the Stonewall Inn on New York City’s Christopher Street on a hot summer’s night in 1969, McDarrah was one of the first photographers to make it to the scene, and the images he took there and at subsequent protests and marches immortalized the beginning of the gay rights movement. His photographs capture the struggles and joys of LBGTQ+ New Yorkers leading the way towards liberation.
