7 Trager, Philip Philip Trager: New York in the 1970s
Steidl 2016 3869308060 / 9783869308067 First Edition Hardcover New New 10 x 0.7 x 11.6 Inches 
112pgs.Black boards, Black and white pictorial covers. Illustrated with black and white photography throughout. in original shrinkwrap. The luminous and compelling photographs in New York in the 1970s capture the essence of a city in a way best described as "place portraiture." Trager's images present the architecture of Manhattan with time-defiant clarity and beauty. Although Trager selected his subjects for aesthetic and visual reasons-rather than from an historical or documentary point of view-with the passage of time his distinctly imaginative photographs have also acquired value as historical documents. The negatives for the images in this book, only recently rediscovered, had originally been archived for printing but Trager began other projects before any prints were made. The photographs in New York in the 1970s were taken at the same time as Trager's timeless Philip Trager: New York, published by Wesleyan University Press in 1980, in which the photographer depicts the city "as a solitary figure, always aware of the 'enveloping sky.'" New York in the 1970s reveals Trager's more concentrated attention to the interaction between the city's architecture and the dynamics of the street.

His work as a member of Magnum regularly graced the front pages of major newspapers around the world, as well as the covers of many international magazines. Worldview, the most ambitious collection of Freed's work ever produced, spans his full 50-year career, from coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict back through the American Civil Rights movement to post-war German reconstruction. Among other highlights, it includes a key selection of images from his New York City Police Department project that became the landmark book, Police Work. There, as throughout his career, Freed's vision was sharp, insightful and critical, but always deeply sympathetic to his fellow human beings--he was a pioneer in what has aptly been called "concerned photography."
