An extensive review of the great range of contemporary New York photographers and their widely diverse, surprisingly divergent, images. It presents their subject matter and etheir very definitions of photography, darkroom and digital. Their photographs have been seen in publications, galleries, and museums.Included are such iconic figures as Annie Liebovitz, Jay Maisel, Amy Arbus, Hugh Bell, Arnold Crane, Bruce Davidson, Carrie Mae Weems, Elliott Erwitt, Helen Levitt, David Gahr, Lee Friedlander, Arthur Leipzig, Builder Levy, Duane Michals, Joel Meyerowitz, Jamel Shabazz, John Loengard, Tony Vaccaro, Mary Ellen Mark, Pete Turner, Burke Uzzle, Deborah Willis, and others, as well as many less familiar but no less brilliant photographers.The works span over 50 years, from Rebecca Lepkoff's 1937 Lower East Side outside fishmarket, to Gilles Peress's 2008 Rwanda genocide victim. Beside powerful social and political commentary, there are well-known and unfamiliar personalities, land- and city-scapes, fashion, sports, dance, food, botanical, animal and other subjects. You will find experimental and strong digital images as well as classic film techniques.
