NEW YORK, NY.- The luminous and compelling photographs in New York in the 1970s capture the essence of a city in a way best described as place portraiture. Tragers images present the architecture of Manhattan with time-defiant clarity and beauty. Although Trager selected his subjects for aesthetic and visual reasonsrather than from an historical or documentary point of viewwith the passage of time his distinctly imaginative photographs have also acquired value as historical documents. The negatives for the images in this book, only recently rediscovered, had originally been archived for printing but Trager began other projects before any prints were made.
The photographs in New York in the 1970s were taken at the same time as Tragers timeless Philip Trager: New York, published by Wesleyan University Press in 1980, in which the photographer depicts the city as a solitary figure, always aware of the enveloping sky. New York in the 1970s reveals Tragers more concentrated attention to the interaction between the citys architecture and the dynamics of the street.
"Trager has definitively taken New York, twice". --Stephen C. Pinson
Philip Trager's books have received exceptional critical acclaim. Four of Philip Tragers books have been chosen for the annual Holiday Issue of The New York Times Book Review.
Philip Trager's distinctly personal photographs of buildings are regarded as landmarks in architectural photography. He was born in Connecticut in 1935. His photographs are held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of the City of New York, the New York Historical Society and the New York Public Library, among others. The Library of Congress in Washington D.C. has acquired the definitive collection of Tragers photographs and will house his archives as part of its core collections. Steidl has published Tragers Faces (2005), Philip Trager (2006, and Photographing INA (2016).
