Jeremiah Dine's illuminated vision of New York street life
This volume is comprised of 196 photographs shot on the streets of New York City by Jeremiah Dine (born 1959) between 2010 and 2017. Dine's exploration of the daily ebb and flow of humanity follows in the tradition of 20th-century street photography as practiced by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Garry Winogrand, among others.The city illuminated is his subject, with the people, objects and streets the supporting cast. Dine has photographed on the streets of New York since he was a teenager, first in black and white with 35mm cameras, then in the 2000s in color with digital cameras. The book's title is derived from the Frank O'Hara poem "Music," which is included here, as well as a playlist of songs that Dine listened to while walking and shooting. Robert Sullivan, author of Rats, The Meadowlands and My American Revolution, contributes an essay. The book was designed and edited by Yolanda Cuomo.
