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.
