New York photographer, Marvin E. Newman is known for his work capturing the day to day happenings of his native city in the 1950’s. Although, photography of New York was not uncommon at this time, what made Newman different was his use of coloured film. Marvin’s talent has caught the chaos and energy of New York’s 20th century through the city, people, landmarks. Although being well known to major NYC galleries his work was off the radar until now.
Taschen will be releasing a 238 page book of Marvin’s photography of the city, and shots from his sports photography and will also feature images of Chicago from a 1950’s vintage circus, a legalized Reno brothel, Nevada and Las Vegas.
The photobook ‘City Of Lights” will be released on May 22nd.
