NY Confidential

New York street life has long been a source of inspiration for photographers keen to capture its brash vibrancy and diverse character. No more so than in the 1950s and 1960s when civil rights protesters, drugstore babes and Coney Island day-trippers were caught up in the quintessential modern city’s mid-century flux. The exhibition NY Confidential features images by Theo Bergstrom, Dick Saunders, Garry Winogrand and lesser known names and mixes hard-boiled reportage with seedy noir. It runs from 9 May to 1 June at the Tom Blau Gallery in London’s Butler’s Wharf.
