About this title

Synopsis:

Social and cultural transition is often hard to gauge. New York in the 1980s and the first half of the 90s was clearly a different place than it is now: the city was more violent, the streets stranger, and Times Square still wonderfully sleazy. Andrew Savulich's (born 1959) subject is this perpetually changing metropolis, and his images are a unique mix of spot news and street photography, capturing crime scenes as well as everyday life. The startling immediacy of the moment prevails in his black-and-white images on which he provides handwritten captions. What at first seems like objective commentary soon reveals a dry ironic tone, at times bordering on black humor.

Review:

Andrew Savulich's first photography book paints a unique portrait of the city's streets from 1980 to 1995.... both a tribute to tabloid photography in its heyday and the wildness of 1980s New York City. (Ellie Schroeder Observer)

When he makes prints for himself rather than for the paper, Savulich adds an extra dimension in the form of neatly lettered captions. They're deadpan and hilarious, leaving just enough unsaid to send your eye right back to the photos. (Christopher Bonanos New York Magazine)
