Part 2 of Frank Horvat’s Up and Down, a study of New York City in the 1980s. In the first section we featured years 1980-1983. We now look at 1984-1986.
“…what I tried to convey by the words ‘up and down’. The highs and lows of New York are not just the transitions from Uptown to Downtown, from the darkness of the subway to the view from the top floors of the skyscrapers, from the temperatures in January to those in July. But also the shifts, between one day and the next and sometimes between one minute and the other, from exhilaration to disappointment, from triumph to failure, from fulfilment to defeat.” – Frank Horvat
The pictures in the gallery below capture the sprit and substance of the world’s greatest city.
