Breath, Figures & Humanity


Another reason to love the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

“I can see the humanity in a way, the figure breathing.”
— Carmen Bambach

About 82nd & Fifth
82nd & Fifth is the Met’s address in New York City. It is also the intersection of art and ideas. We’ve invited 100 curators from across the Museum to talk about 100 works of art that changed the way they see the world. Eleven Museum photographers interpret their vision: one work, one curator, two minutes at a time.

82nd & Fifth is a year-long series of 100 episodes. Throughout 2013, new releases will appear every Wednesday.
