Product Description

New York in the 70s is a personal collection of photographs documenting an exciting chapter in New York's history-and a remarkable body of work produced by photographer Allan Tannenbaum while he was a photo editor of the SoHo Weekly News in Manhattan. The photographs encompass many aspects of New York life while capturing the heady exuberance of the era-from SoHo and the art world to the city's politics and society. By photographing everything from street gangs to disco divas, from homeless to Hollywood stars, Tannenbaum had assembled a personal diary of his journey as a photojournalist and raconteur through a strange and exotic era of New York life.

"Tannenbaum's photographs of the 1970s are as wildly entertaining and energetic as that wonderful decade itself. They form an important visual history of a moment when American culture changed forever." -- David Schonauer, Editor-in Chief American Photo

This paperback edition is slightly smaller than the original hard cover edition but is otherwise identical, with 270 pages of beautifully reproduced photographs and text by the photographer. Yoko Ono wrote the preface and P.J. O'Rourke wrote the introduction.
