Product Description

Preface by Yoko Ono
Foreward by P.J. O'Rourke

New York in the 70s is a personal collection of photographs documenting an exciting chapter in New York s history and a remarkable body of work produced by photographer Allan Tannenbaum while he was a photo editor of the SoHo Weekly News in Manhattan. The photographs encompass many aspects of New York life while capturing the heady exuberanceof the era from SoHo and the art world to the city s politics and society. By photographing everything from street gangs to disco divas, from homeless to Hollywood stars, Tannenbaum had assembled a personal diary of his journey as a photojournalist and raconteur through a strange and exotic era of New York life.

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
