“Zoo York” chronicles New York’s extravagance and openness of the pre-Giuliani 1980’s, documenting everything from parades to nightlife to street fights. From the introduction, “New York is a zoo, not because the people here are animals, but because, as in any zoo, they are interesting and worth examining. We do not visit a zoo with a sense of judgement or superiority. We go for a better understanding of a different way of life…Here people have freedom to choose their own lifestyles: how they want to live.” A classic New York photobook.
