Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders

Danny Lyon’s The Bikeriders (1968), became a seminal work of New Journalism when the photographer documented some of the real-life subjects that helped invent the ethos conjured by Loewenthal’s project.

Rick McCloskey: Van Nuys Blvd. 1972

Rick McCloskey: Van Nuys Blvd. 1972

There was a time, lasting a full thirty years, when every main street in every town, and in every city in America was teeming with a celebration of young people and their automobiles. From the late 1940s through the end of the 1970s, the culture of ‘cruising’ captured and dominated the ‘public space’ during the evenings along the chosen thoroughfares…

Dona Ann McAdams: Performative Acts

Dona Ann McAdams: Performative Acts

In the 1980s I often attended performances at P.S. 122, the seminal venue for avant-garde performance in New York. As an artist and curator, I found inspiration, talent, and a community of intense purpose. Identity-based politicized work found its home there. Often times, I would notice a woman, unobtrusive, off to the side, seated on the floor, taking photographs with…

John Cohen: Morocco

John Cohen: Morocco

In the summer of 1955 a relatively naive and uninformed John Cohen crossed the straits of Gibraltar. He arrived in Tangier with a handwritten note in cursive Arabic; the man who had composed it in New York had told him to “keep this paper far from your passport.” Cohen had no idea why or indeed what the note said; it…
