New York in Photobooks

Published by RM/Centro José Guerrero
Edited by Horacio Fernández. Text by Jeffrey Ladd, et al.

Cover from "William Klein: Life is Good & Good for You in New York" is from 'New York in Photobooks.The capital of the 20th century in photobooks, from Berenice Abbott to Thomas Roma
New York in Photobooks gathers and studies a selection of images of the capital of the 20th century, one of the most photogenic and most photographed cities in history. Through a wealth of gorgeous reproductions of photobook spreads, the city of skyscrapers is captured from the zenith of its construction in the 1930s to the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, alongside the urban life of the New Yorkers themselves, in images that epitomize the very genre of street photography.
Many of these books are the work of European and Japanese photographers, who discovered multiple perspectives—cultural, social, economic—from which to view the city that shaped the 20th century.
Alongside texts by numerous photography scholars, classics of the photobook canon by photographers such as Berenice Abbott, Nobuyoshi Araki, Cecil Beaton, Mario Bucovich, Roy DeCarava, Bruce Davidson, Raymond Depardon, Juan Fresán, Bruce Gilden, György Lörinczy, Lewis Hine, Evelyn Hofer, Karol Kallay, André Kertész, William Klein, Helen Levitt, Danny Lyon, Daido Moriyama, Ugo Mulas, Robert Rauschenberg, Kees Scherer, Aaron Siskind, Weegee, Kojima Yasutaka and Ruiko Yoshida are included.

New York in Photobooks

New York in PhotobooksKen Schles's Invisible City (1988), Weegee's Naked City (1945), William Klein's Life is Good & Good For You in New York (1956) and Anthony Aviles and Don Charles's Harlem Stirs (1966) are four of almost 50 quintessential volumes featured in New York in Photobooks. A must-have for any collector of photography books, this 240-page paperback is a treasure. Other photographers include Berenice Abbott, Helen Levitt, Walker Evans, Daido Moriyama, Bruce Davidson and Robert Rauschenberg, to name just a few. "Every photobook is a forest proud of its individual trees," editor Horacio Fernandez writes, "a group of images that are neither autonomous nor obliged to be confined within a frame in order to gain a sense of their own identity or essence. On the contrary, in these books, photos are the subordinated clauses of a text with a beginning and an end: a mosaic that only acquires meaning when all the parts combine to make a coherent and legible work." continue to blog
