New York in The 70s a personal collection of photographs that document an exciting chapter in New York City's history - and a remarkable body of work produced by photographer Allan Tannenbaum while he was photo editor of the SoHo Weekly News in Manhattan. Based mainly on news and feature stories assigned by the paper, the photographs encompass many aspects of New York life while capturing the heady exuberance of the 1970s and early 1980s. SoHo and the art world were his primary subjects, yet the images also provide a broad chronicle of the city's politics and society. Entertainment - especially the music scene - and night life became a large part of the editorial mix. The collision of continuing 1960s counterculture with the remnants of Nixon, Watergate, and Vietnam, coupled with a stagnant economy, was a catalytic force that resulted in an explosion of creativity. 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 era in New York. His studio portraits, night-time flashes, and street photography paint an unique and often unseen picture of the 1970s in New York City.

Review:

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

About the Author:

Allan Tannenbaum discovered photography in the 1960s. His dream career as a photojournalist became reality when he joined the SoHo Weekly News, a downtown New York City newspaper, in 1973. For several years he covered the city, exploring its every facet - from the underground to the high society - and documenting its political, social and cultural evolution. His photographs, taken during the turbulent 1970s and early 1980s, serve as a lasting record of that era's resolution of ideas, trends, and movements that had begun in the 1960s. SoHo Weekly News folded in 1982, and Tannenbaum went on to become an award-winning photojournalist, with work published in such major international magazines such as Time, Life, Newsweek, Paris Match and Stern.
