Description

The author writes, "As I was making these urban photographs in New York during the 1970s, I became aware that what interested me was the rapidly changing face of the city. It was a love affair between my camera eye and the city in the painful throes of transition. As the old buildings I photographed were being torn down or squeezed precariously between towering, impersonal structures, I felt increasingly that part of me was being demolished, too. It became my urgent mission to capture the moment between yesterday's function and today's demolition. Many of the old buildings pictured here have since disappeared, along with the people who lived or made their livelihood in them."show more

Review quote

What first strikes one on viewing Marianne Robinson's photos is the straight-on honesty and identification with her subject. Her black-and-white images incorporate her artistic and respectful view of the people and the environment of New York City in an exciting and dynamic way. To put it simply, one gets a good feel from her work! -- Tom Schultz "Private Correspondence"show more
