Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
New York City has long been a focus of visual imagery. Indeed, according to renowned art critic Max Kozloff, New York is a capital of photography, a center of teeming and ever-changing visions that circulate throughout the world. This pictorial history of the city documents Gotham in its moments of public splendor and individual solitude, capturing pictures of Ellis Island apprehensiveness, sweatshop squalor, and hippies at play. With 114 duotones and 17 color illustrations, New York: Capital of Photography presents a city of newcomers and marginalized groups, a throbbing metropolis pulsing toward the future
Richard B. Woodward
[U]nderscores the essential role of Jewish photographers in...N.Y.C....Kozloff speculates why this group, medium and city made such a good match.
New York Times
Library Journal
As Walker Evans aged, he arrived in New York City to demonstrate some of photography's best tricks, epitomized by his candid portraits of subway riders shot through peepholes cut in newspapers he pretended to read. Evans is one of dozens of photographers in this well-designed and often surprising book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Jewish Museum in New York and reveals a city full of visual excitement. The former executive editor of Artforum, Kozloff curated the show and compiled this volume of black-and-white (and some color) photographs, mostly by Jewish artists, spanning from 1898 to 2001. In technique and composition, these pictures fail to fit any studious or professional parameters. Instead, they represent a rough, immediate, and nearly accidental moment on film, the work of an exceptionally savvy and improvisational band of photographers. Weegee, Diane Arbus, Ben Shahn, Alfred Stieglitz, and others represented here have understood and pointed a camera at scenes that capture the heart of a great metropolis its random and endless gatherings of people, who are all New Yorkers. Recommended. David Bryant, New Canaan Lib., CT Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
