The American photographer Abe Frajndlich has close connections with New York. He describes the cityas his muse and repeatedly records it and its people in haunting photographs.This volume shows selected, highly personal images which are very different from the ubiquitous postcardsand poster views, which is lavishly illustrated in this book.
Abe Frajndlich (*1946, Frankfurt am Main) is known internationally for his portraits of famous people such as Jack Lemmon and Stephen Hawking.
Since moving to New York in 1984 the city itself has been one of his principal subjects. He is fascinated by its radiance and watches spellbound how it changes and reinvents itself on a daily basis. The result is a multi-faceted picture: the black-and-white photographs aresometimes perceptive, sometimes thoughtful, and sometimes witty or quirky -but they are always a declaration of love to New York.
