Forthcoming from powerHouse, Vivian Cherry’s New Yorkis the second collection of photographs from the Big Apple Native.

Originally a dancer, Cherry has been photographing New York for over 50 years. Her first powerHouse book was published in 2007 (Helluva Town: New York City in the 1940s and 50s). The new volume draws from pictures taken over the last decade. Cherry is one of the last surviving members of the Photo League, a group that embraced social realism, and her work continues to follow the tendencies born through that collective.

Consider her work street style before the blog era. Or, more appropriately consider it a growing document of the vibrant cultural life of New York City.

Available for pre-order from Amazon.
