Mr New York

The Museum of the City of New York has many photo goings on this month, but front and center is the work of iconic New York photographer Rudy Burckhardt, his show Street Dance opened Feb 1. Also added to this is a film series of his, 15 shorts he had made over his illustrious career, this Sunday coming. The above image is from his book Afternoon in Astoria, a project near and dear to my heart. Check out the cool MOMA album designed in 2002. Could that image have been shot anywhere in postwar Europe? Wow. No its Queens. Antonioni eat you heart out.
