'These really are my best pictures!' Dirk REINARTZ said to himself as he looked at the photographs of his trip to New York in 1974.
REINARTZ chose several for publication, but sadly died shortly thereafter. This book completes the project he began. REINARTZ's New York photographs offer a highly personal tale of the city. A
mongst the crush and crowds of people he discovered special characters and expressive faces and in the city that casts many shadows he captured a fascinating play of light.
REINARTZ photographs recall the atmosphere of a place which, in the middle of the 1970s, was full of promise and on the threshold of an urban revival." (publisher's note, © Steidl, 2007)
