Gallerist | Editor
James Danziger began his career in the photography world in 1977 as the youngest Picture Editor of The London Sunday Times Magazine. In the 1980s he became Features Editor of Vanity Fair where he was instrumental in repositioning the magazine and in championing Annie Leibovitz.
From 1989 to 2000, Danziger founded and ran the James Danziger Gallery in New York City, one of the world’s top photography galleries, representing such established photographers as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Annie Leibovitz, Mario Giacomelli and Joel Meyerowitz. He later became Director of Magnum Photos’ American operations.
In 2004 Danziger reopened his gallery in Chelsea under the name Danziger Projects where it represents Jack Pierson, Annie Leibovitz, Chuck Close, and The Sartorialist. He also devotes some time to his photography blog, The Year In Pictures.
