Pic of the Day: New York City 1968-1978


We’ve been reading a lot about New York in the late ’60s and early ’70s lately, from Stephen Kasher’s Max’s Kansas City to Patti Smith’s Just Kids , and it’s all making us wistful for a time we never got to experience. So you’ll have to forgive us for fawning over the charming, witty, and beautifully composed photos of Paul McDonough: New York Photos 1968-1978 . In an photo-studded essay at The Paris Review , McDonough writes about what brought him to the city in those years, his printing process, and the vast array of odd characters who made New York’s street life an irresistible subject. The exhibit opens tomorrow at Sasha Wolf Gallery in Manhattan.
