New York City after the second world war - in pictures

Todd Webb’s photographs of postwar New York depict the warmth and diversity of the city. He studied under Ansel Adams, and his beautiful black and white shots reflect that influence. The Museum of the City of New York is hosting a retrospective of his work, Todd Webb: A City Seen until 4 September
