The photography exhibition currently on display in the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery, N. Jay Jaffee Photographs from Public to Personal, 1947-1997, received praise this week in the Baltimore Sun.
The review discusses the personal background and career of Jaffee, in relation to his “visceral” and “compelling” photographs of New York City life. The author Tim Smith states that, “N. Jay Jaffee might not be among the best known American photographers of the 20th century, but a sizable and engrossing exhibit of his works at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, makes it obvious that he deserves much wider recognition.”
