Need help, 1976 – Manhattan, NY

This is the second and final part of an album of black-and-white New York City photographs by Spanish photographer Manel Armengol. (If you want to see the city in colour, he’s those, too.) As Manel walked the streets in 1977 and 1978, his eye focused on architecture, street scenes, people, cars, trucks, streets and parks.
