I Shot New York
Title | I Shot New York
Author | Ralph Ginzburg
Type | Book
Rating | 9
Notes | This book offers a powerful new perspective on a much photographed subject: New York City. The book’s creator is veteran news photographer (and former publisher of incendiary magazines) Ralph Ginzburg, who assigned himself the daunting task of photographing a different news event in The Big Apple on 365 consecutive days. The result is a year-long, 510-image extravaganza of the high drama and grandeur that are the everyday life of Gotham.

I Shot New York resounds with the city’s parades and protests, funerals and weddings, conflagrations and ribbon-cuttings. It is a gallery of the show-biz superstars, politicos, crooks, cops, Presidents, elephants, Pope, baseball greats, soldiers, stuntmen, drug addicts and divas who pervade this exuberant matrix of commerce and culture.

Possessors of I Shot New York will return to it again and again, noise it about to friends, and proudly display it on their coffee tables, not only because it is news photography of the highest order but because it is the definitive time capsule of life in the world’s most alluring mega-city during the final decade of the 20th century.

Comments | [10/03/02] This is one of the best books I have bought recently. Ralph Ginzburg did an amazing thing: He made a nice picture and covered the news in New York City EVERY day for a year without taking any days off. Ginzburg shot in black and white and did all the printing himself, lending a very personal touch to this book. All of us like to complain that there is nothing worth shooting sometimes...Ginzburg proves us wrong.
