Inhaltsangabe: "Arlene Gottfried is a photographer with an eye and a mind on the city streets—an ‘insider’ with an ability to capture images of life that are raw, real, hard-edged, and caustic, and at the same time affectionate, funny, and loving." (Photo Review)
Before gentrification, New York City was a gritty and inspiring place. And in its midst was Arlene Gottfried, whose eye for the sublime caught it all. SOMETIMES OVERWHELMING, her second powerHouse book, is a manic yet romantic ode to the people of New York City in the 1970s and 80s. From Coney Island’s eccentric denizens to a Hasid at Riis Beach’s nude bay to the disco nights of sexual abandon and the children in the original Village Halloween parade, SOMETIMES OVERWHELMING is a delightfully lighthearted look at the most outrageous people, in the most original milieu, you might ever see.
