Overlook Preview: NEW YORK IN THE 70s
Coming in April, New York in the 70s is a personal collection of photographs documenting an exciting chapter in New York’s history—and a remarkable body of work produced by photographer Allan Tannenbaum while he was a photo editor of the SoHo Weekly News in Manhattan. The photographs encompass many aspects of New York life while capturing the heady exuberanceof the era—from SoHo and the art world to the city’s politics and society. By photographing everything from street gangs to disco divas, from homeless to Hollywood stars, Tannenbaum had assembled a personal diary of his journey as a photojournalist and raconteur through a strange and exotic era of New York life. New York in the 70s includes a Preface by Yoko Ono and Foreword by P.J. O'Rourke. On sale April 2!
