Editorial Reviews

Review

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

" A valuable, lasting remembrance of things past."-Ron Rosenbaum

About the Author

Allan Tannenbaum's career in photography spans more than four decades. His first work as a professional photographer was in 1973 for the "SoHo Weekly News", and he remained with that paper until it folded in 1982. He now works as an international photojournalist contributing to various noted publications including "Time", "Life", and "Newsweek". He is the author of three books of his photography: including "New York in the 70s" (Feierabend, 2003), "New York" (Feierabend, 2004), and "John and Yoko: A New York Love Story" (Insight Editions, 2007). --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

I was a child in the seventies and I remember most about it, fond memories being a kid. This book, however, makes me wish I was old enough to be an adult and living the way adults did back then. So raw, provocative, old school bad-asses! Very sexy and gritty... you feel the characters jumping out of the book. You can almost experience the amazing shots of the disco scene, etc. It has elements in there that's almost scary, in a romantic way. Lots of texture, lots of life. Something we lack today.

Great book. Makes me uber proud to be a New Yorker, good-bad-ugly. Super job Mr. Tannenbaum!

I had this out during my holiday party last weekend and it was the hit of the night! I couldn't drag people away from it . . . the photos are really fun and sexy, but even better are the stories and memories they spark. All night people were saying "Oh! I totally remember that!" and launching into their own favorite stories from the 70s. Definitely my top pick for a coffee table book.

My friends and I had a great time waxing nostalgic with this book. It is a collection of photographs of NYC in the 70s. The photos are incredible and cover everything about the 70s--art, architecture, fashion, disco etc. The sexual frenzy that came about in the 70s is captured perfectly. This book is for those of us who came of age in the 70s, or for anyone interested in the 70s. A great history book.

I've enjoyed having my memory jogged by this book of photos of New York in the 70s, most of them of famous people and places.
I especially enjoyed the images of the Lennon-Ono family (John and Yoko). I wonder what Lennon would make of New York today, with Montblanc stores in the industrial SoHo and TriBeCa districts.
I didn't find it as useful for my purposes (I'm writing a memoir, and I lived in NYC in the 60s and spent time there in the 70s) as it might be, but it is a lovely book and I can definitely recommend it to anyone who admires John and Yoko or has curiosity about Club 54.

A fantastic document of a time and place like no other. New York in the Seventies was a thrill a second, and it seems like Tannenbaum was everywhere, taking beautiful clear pictures of everyone and everything. An exciting social document!
