Vintage Photos Of New York City In The 1980s And 1990s
Street photographer Richard Sandler regularly walked the streets of New York City from the 1970s to the early 2000s, capturing the many transformations the city experienced throughout those decades.
Sandler’s new book, The Eyes of the City reveals many of his never-before-seen photographs documenting the city’s crime, drug use, tourism, and everyday life.
“These photographs are like stills from a horror film,” Sandler says, “and yet they’re the pictures of our lives. Specifically our lives in the city. What a play we put on in front of each other on the streets, living so close the way we do, like mice in a burrow. A play of greed, decay, venality, beauty, longing, hidden meanings, coincidences, love, terror, mundanity, suffering, boredom, loneliness.”
