SummaryMartha Cooper offers 16 postcards of her very own New York. With her trusty Nikon, she has documented memorable moments in her beloved New York, from the 70s to the present. She was there when the town was bankrupt and the crime rate high, and had a front seat as graffiti and Hip Hop culture developed and Keith Haring began his career on the city streets. She remains in a gentrified New York, post-9/11 with the same love for the city, its culture and its people. A journey through time, the development of street culture and the city's soul.
Every picture says more than a thousand words, and Martha Cooper: Postcards from New York City is a journey through time, the development of street culture and the city's soul. The cards have been carefully selected from Cooper's thousands of pictures. Some come from her famous books, others are previously unpublished.
