Evelyn Hofer: New York

Edited by Andreas Pauly, Sabine Schmid. Text by John Haskell.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Evelyn Hofer: New York.'

The starting point for this publication is the 1965 book New York Proclaimed, which features an in-depth essay by V.

S. Pritchett and photos by Evelyn Hofer (1922–2009), and which enjoyed great popularity upon its original publication. New York Proclaimed is an example of Hofer’s perhaps most important body of work, her city portrait collections: books that present comprehensive prose texts by renowned authors alongside her self-contained visual essays with their own narratives.

This newly conceived New York focuses on Hofer’s photos of the 1960s as well as previously unpublished images from the early 1970s. In Hofer’s photos of the street and (semi-) public spaces, people and architecture become symbols of a particular time and place.

New York contains a new essay by John Haskell that posits possible stories behind Hofer’s photos and draws connections between images taken over the course of ten years.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times

Matthew Sedacca

Lugging her cumbersome camera around mid-20th century New York, Evelyn Hofer captured a rapidly changing city, slowly, sensitively and methodically.

Daily Mail

Dusica Sue Malesevic

Beguiling, bygone New York City - from bums to the Bowery: Stunning portraits of people and places capture the Big Apple in the 60s and 70s.

The Guardian

In the 1960s and 70s, ...Hofer turned her eye to New York, capturing everyday life from the ever-expanding architecture to the wide range of people inhabiting the city.

Time stops in 'Evelyn Hofer: New York'

Time stops in 'Evelyn Hofer: New York'

"When you step into a photograph you step into the past, into a history that becomes, as you step into the frame, the present," John Haskell writes in Steidl's beautiful new Evelyn Hofer monograph. "Stopping the world requires quieting the heart, and in principle, it's very simple. If you stand on a corner in the middle of the big city, watching the pedestrians cross the street, the cars honking, the machinery pounding, waiting as patiently as possible, you might, in the middle of your watching and waiting, see inside the moment in front of you as the moment breaks apart and divides, like a cell divides, and if you can slide in between those two dividing moments, for an instant, it seems that time, in that instant stops." Featured image is "Three boys at the front door" (1975). continue to blog

Radiating authenticity: Evelyn Hofer

Radiating authenticity: Evelyn Hofer

"The Bowery" (1963) is reproduced from Evelyn Hofer: New York, the beautiful new clothbound monograph from Steidl. Hilton Kramer once called Hofer "the most famous unknown photographer in America." Born in Germany in 1922, Hofer and her family fled to Switzerland in 1933 to escape the Nazis, later continuing to Spain, Mexico, and eventually New York. This volume spans 1964 through 1975—from lunch counters to the L train; Chinatown to Central Park. Through 68 black-and-white photographs and 25 color, Hofer captures a rare and dignified stillness in all her subjects. Whether photographing people or places, the images radiate authenticity. This book would make an excellent gift for any photographer or lover of NYC history. continue to blog
