Photographs by Andrew Savulich.
Steidl, 2013. 176 pp., 125 tritone illustrations, 10¾x11½".
Social and cultural transition is usually hard to gauge. New York in the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s was clearly a different place than it is now. The city was more violent and more street weird. Times Square was still wonderfully sleazy. Andrew Savulich is a photographer living and working in New York City. His work is a unique mix of spot news and street photography - capturing scenes of crime as well as everyday life. The startling immediacy of the moment prevails in his black-and-white images on which he provides handwritten captions. What at first seems like objective commentary soon reveals the photographer's dry ironic tone, at times bordering on black humour.
