The New Documents Exhibition was held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City from February 28-May 7, 1967. This exhibition was curated by John Szarkowski, Director of the Department of Photography, and featured 90 photographs by Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand prior to becoming well-known photographers. As described in an exhibition statement by Szarkowski, these works displayed a shift away from the social reform-oriented early documentary photographs, taking instead a more subjective approach toward American documentary photography.
