THE EYES OF THE CITY: RICHARD SANDLER. PowerHouse Books, Brooklyn, 2016. Distributed by Penguin Random House LLC, New York. 180 pp. 27 x 30 cm. ISBN 9781576877876 In English.
Publisher's description: Timing, skill, and talent all play an important role in creating a great photograph, but it is perhaps the most basic, primary element -- the photographer's eye--which is most crucial. In The Eyes of the City Richard Sandler not only showcases decades-worth of his strong eye for street photography, but also the eyes of his subjects as he catches them looking into his camera at just the right moment. From 1977 to September 11th 2001, Richard regularly walked through Boston and New York City, encountering all that the streets had to offer, and the results are presented here, many for the first time. Sandler credits his fascination with street life to his years in New York as a teenager in the 1960s. Young Sandler, a frequent truant, spent much of his time in a very different Times Square than we know today. His quests were to buy illegal fireworks and visit the arcades and side shows, particularly Hubert's Flea Circus on 42nd Street. Manhattan was was a cyclone of faces: some at play, many clearly suffering. All eyes, ears, and heart, Sandler was sensitive to it all as a kid peering into this adult world. Such early impressions would come to play a significant role in his later street photography.
