Steidl Publishers has recently released their book, Manhattan Out, which features old works from famed French photographer, journalist and documentary maker, Raymond Depardon. The book is a collection of black and white portraits of New York City on an excursion taken in 1980.
He has won numerous accolades during his time as director of collective group, Gamma, while photographing impoverished and troubled areas of Africa and southeast Asia. The collection in Manhattan Out is another demonstration of Departdon capturing his subjects with compassion and respect to the reality of their lives. An amusing detail about this collection is that most of his subjects were in fact aware of his camera. Depardon caught the grit, displaced glamour and rawness of this truly vibrant city in it’s most exciting of times.
