Editors’ Picks: 14 Things to See in New York This Week

The United States has a rich history of on-the-road documentary photography, one that’s deeply connected with our cultural understanding of the 20th century. However, that history has primarily been written by men. In the early 1990s, photographer Susan Lipper sought to put her own mark on the male-dominated genre with her series “trip, 1993–1999.” She traveled throughout small-town America taking grainy pictures of strange, often funny scenes that other photographers may have overlooked. “trip, 1993–1999” opens at Higher Pictures this week, marking the first time Lipper’s landmark series has been shown in its entirety in the US.
