Fay S. Lincoln photograph collection (1920-1968)
During the course of his forty-year career in commercial photography, Lincoln (1894-1976) established himself as one of the most influential and widely respected architectural photographers in America.

The Fay S. Lincoln photograph collection contains approximately 10,000 original negatives and proof prints. This collection was donated in 1973, after Lincoln’s retirement to Centre Hall (Pa.).

Here, selected photographs feature views of 1930s Manhattan and New York Harbor; images from Lincoln’s travels in France, Cuba, Williamsburg, Virginia and the American South; projects by the Japanese artist Isamu Noguchi and futurist Buckminster Fuller.

A guide to the collection is available.
