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 (1922Ė2009), and which enjoyed great popularity upon its original publication. New York Proclaimed is an example of Hoferís 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This newly conceived New York focuses on Hoferís photos of the 1960s as well as previously unpublished images from the early 1970s. In Hoferís 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 Hoferís 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.
