In the work of Ken Schles, what the daylight does not see the night reveals.
In 1988, Ken Schles’s Invisible City came out to great reviews. It was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and earned comparisons to Ed van der Elsken’s photo novel Love on the Left Bank. Schles’ bohemia was New York’s Lower East Side. From dawn to dusk, he photographed the street and underground activities of his neighbors.
Some twenty five years after Invisible City, Schles found more photos of nocturnal New York in his archives. Public displays of affection and riotous events portray a pre-Internet generation who found consolation in the night. Stoic faces amid party crowds are more mysterious. Beyond the fun, there is so much more story that Schles’s new collection Night Walk unearths.
