Format: Hardcover
I love this book. It is a rich record of the faces and people and events that you can experience in the City of New York. Vivian Cherry has a knack for capturing emotion and personality in photos. In a sense I think she is a visual recorder of a unique experience of a time and a place. A pictorial Anthropologist. Her photos of people waiting at a bus stop are fun...Her record of the faces of people in full shock on the sidewalks of NY is jolting. Ms. Cherry's ability to capture the variety of ethnicities, emotions and behovviors of a decade is uncanny

Just as I greatly enjoyed her first photography book "Helluva Town" this one brings the 2000's to life in her own unique way - I can definitely see this book stirring interest and enjoyment both in the present and well into the future.
