1970s New York: a mecca for musicians, artists, and writers drawn to its vibrant energy and possibilities, but also a place of grinding poverty and urban decay, where crime and violence were everyday realities and hope danced with despair.

In Street People Portfolio, David J. Bookbinder exposes the grit and splendor of a city at its most raw and real, creating a graphic testament to this time, this place, and to the haunting people who inhabited it. In portraits so vivid that they fairly leap off the page and into our psyches, he delivers the street in the wholeness of its violence, its sexuality, and its poignance.

Experience this strikingly illustrated account of this turbulent period and its forgotten people.

Witness invisible New York made visual.
