Debuting with the Ballad of Sexual Dependency by Nan Goldin, CEG has shown everything from street photography (Susan Meiselas, Sebastiao Salgado, James Nachtwey) to fashion photography (Annie Leibovitz, Herb Ritts, Matthew Rolston) to traditional landscape images (Michael Kenna, Lynn Geesaman) to social-conscious work (Richard Misrach, Jeffrey Wolin, Terry Evans, Allen Ginsberg) to images created as a springboard for story-telling (Joel-Peter Witkin, Elizabeth Ernst, Dan Estabrook) etc.
Working closely with magazine editors and book publishers, Catherine Edelman Gallery co-published Written in Memory: Portraits of the Holocaust, photographs by Jeffrey Wolin, in association with Chronicle Books; Pressure, photographs by Joe Ziolkowski, in association with Pohlmann Press; What Were You Thinking, celebrating the 15 year anniversary of the gallery, in association with Paper Mirror Press. The gallery is currently working with Nazraeli Press to publish a monograph on the work of Michelle Keim, a young Chicago photographer.
