PBS just licensed two of my 1970’s NYC Street Photos for an American Masters doc on the 1977 blackout. Production on the film should be complete within a month and it will be airing sometime in July. Above shot of hookers was taken on the Bowery near CBGB’s. You have to love those boots . . .

Times Square 1980’s

I shot this on 42nd street between 7th and 8th Ave in the heart of Times Square during  the time this area was transitioning from the down and dirty place it was to a cross between Disneyland and Las Vegas. I now call it Las Disney. For a while all of the businesses were shuttered and closed and the whole street was painted in these bright colors. It was very surreal and I haven’t seen too many photos shot here during this time.
