Andrew Savulich: The City

Text by Brendan Bernhard.

"Woman Laughing After Car Wreck" (1989) is reproduced from <I>Andrew Savulich: The City</I>.Social and cultural transition is often hard to gauge. New York in the 1980s and the first half of the 90s was clearly a different place than it is now: the city was more violent, the streets stranger, and Times Square still wonderfully sleazy. Andrew Savulich's (born 1959) subject is this perpetually changing metropolis, and his images are a unique mix of spot news and street photography, capturing crime scenes as well as everyday life. The startling immediacy of the moment prevails in his black-and-white images on which he provides handwritten captions. What at first seems like objective commentary soon reveals a dry ironic tone, at times bordering on black humor.

"Woman Laughing After Car Wreck" (1989) is reproduced from Andrew Savulich: The City.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Magazine

Christopher Bonanos

When he makes prints for himself rather than for the paper, Savulich adds an extra dimension in the form of neatly lettered captions. They're deadpan and hilarious, leaving just enough unsaid to send your eye right back to the photos.

Observer

Ellie Schroeder

Andrew Savulich's first photography book paints a unique portrait of the city's streets from 1980 to 1995.... both a tribute to tabloid photography in its heyday and the wildness of 1980s New York City.

Andrew Savulich: The City

Andrew Savulich: The City

"Man falls between subway cars," "People watching jumper on hotel roof," "Woman with cat escaping 4 alarm fire" and "Youth shot in subway for dissing – staring too long" are just a few of the captions to New York Daily News staff photographer Andrew Savulich's Times Square photographs from the 1980s and 90s. His new book, Andrew Savulich: The City, printed in glorious tritone by the brilliant artist-technicians at Steidl, is certainly the most beautifully produced crime photography book of recent memory, as well as a critic's pick at The New York Times. Essayist Brendan Bernhard writes, "For over fifteen years, Andrew Savulich parked his battered '67 Dodge Coronet on the edge of New York's Times Square, waiting for something to happen—preferably something disastrous. As anyone familiar with his work can tell you, he has not waited in vain. A street photographer, Savuich is also a practitioner of what is known in the trade as 'spot news'—capturing the daily dose of real-life madness, murder, mayhem and sheer weirdness that sells newspapers and fuels a growing number of tabloid television shows." Featured photograph, taken in 1984, is captioned: "Citizens' arrest of alleged pickpocket." continue to blog
