Taking Photos For The Village Voice: Documenting NY

Before today I was unaware of Fred McDarrah.  After reading an article in the NY Times, I found out he was the first photo editor for the Village Voice and for many years, it's only staff photographer.  He must have had a sixth sense of where it was happening in NY. He has captured everyone from Dylan and Warhol to Robert Kennedy and Robert Moses. These people mostly appear against the gritty backdrop of the city in the 1960's and 70's.  The city is also depicted in all it's gritty glory. 

His work will be on exhibit at the Steven Kasher Gallery from Jan 30th through March 8th.  Looking forward to seeing this.
