New York Times Photography


Filling your home with art that you enjoy is very important to making your house really feel like a home. Art is certainly an extremely personal taste, and having items that you absolutely love is always relaxing when you come home from a long day. Some may prefer sculpture, while others may fill their homes with objet d’ art. Others really appreciate photography. For those that do, photographs taken from The New York Times archive not only often tell a history lesson, but are stunning on your wall, day after day.


When comparing it to canvas and prints, framed photography really stands out because of its rich color, or stark contrast of black and white. The majority of photographs taken from The New York Times archive and available through Pottery Barn are black-and-white, easily complementing the decor in any room, whether it is dark or light. It’s tough to forget some of the stunning photography throughout the years, such as “Lunch Hour 22 Stories Up” or “The Good Ol’ Days Return – 1933,” taken right after the end of Prohibition. Proudly display this piece of historic photography in your den, game room or bar area. There are many water scenes and beach photographs to choose from as well, which can add some elegance to your bedroom, mudroom or living area. “A View of the Bridge – 1972” is an excellent choice for a water theme, while the photograph of the great Chicago Ferris wheel offers a fun, summer vibe.


The several colored photographs available from The New York Times archive are also stunning works of art. Enjoy a beautiful photograph of a beach scene at Jones Beach in Long Island, New York, or enjoy another aerial beach picture of couples and families enjoying the sun together on a warm summer day. There are also many other beautiful color photographs to behold that are not within The New York Times archive, for those who would like to match some color in with the starkness of black-and-white photography. When shopping, you are also able to sort and search for art by subject as well as artist, to make searching a little easier. For example, if you want to search The New York Times archive only, choose that option, or branch out a little and peruse abstract art or art that features architecture. Shopping by artist also allows you to filter by photographer or artist.
