On display at the Museum of Fine Arts are some of the 446 recent additions to the museum's photography collection. The exhibition, entitled "Viewpoints," includes works by Dorothea Lange, Herni Cartier-Bresson and Diane Arbus.

The photographs were collected over 35 years by New York art dealer and gallery owner Howard Greenberg, who played a significant role in developing the modern photography market.

We spoke with Greenberg at the MFA about what drew him to photography, how the market has changed, and highlights from his collection.

Guest
