Review

"A photography book about New York city might sound like something that's been done 1,000 times, but photographer Paul McDonough's take on it is truly unique....a surprising and engaging collection of street photography that feels like traveling through a time machine when looking through the book's pages." –The Epoch Times

Format: Hardcover
You don't always need words to tell a story. "New York Photographs 1968-1978" looks at the storied work of Paul McDonough, known for his many black and white artistic photographs that talked with a story of humanity and people going about their lives in everyday New York City. Famed strongly for his work, this collection brings some of his best work, along with an analytical essay from Susan Kismaric. For a fine analysis of people in one of America's most diverse cities, "New York Photographs 1968-1978" is an excellent collection for both coffee tables and art history collections.

I like Paul McDonough's work and decided to purchase this after a show I saw in NYC. Good book, nicely printed, a thorough representation. I'm not a photography book expert, but as a person who enjoys photography I would recommend this.
