American Street photographer Simpson Kalisher is celebrated in a small exhibition, Simpson Kalisher: The Alienated Photographer, on view through September 18, 2011 at the MFA Boston. Kalisher’s no-nonsense street scenes capture the spirit of 1950s/60s New York City. In 2009, the MFA received a gift from Kalisher supporter Gloria Richards of 100 photographs. 59 of these works make up the current exhibition, a selection that is at once “instantly familiar” and capable of inspiring a thousand questions.

A few more of Kalisher’s photographs follow after the jump.
