The bustling gateway to America, New York has always been a city of dramatic excitement—big dreams and constant changes. A legendary photojournalist and former president of Magnum Photos, Thomas Hoepker vividly captures the city’s complex spirit in all its many moods while documenting the most recent fifty-plus years of the city’s history. A long-time resident, Hoepker’s images range from the early 60s through 9/11, and up to the very present including the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
With journalistic zeal and a keen eye for crucial details, he documents a true New York with its diverse inhabitants and the allure of its prominent landmarks and hidden, far-flung corners. His insightful photography conveys a vivid sense of the city’s physical landscape and intricate urban culture.
