Richard Renaldi's Manhattan Early Sunday Morning Diary

2017-01-12

Ahh, New York, The City That Never Sleeps. So much can be said and done in the boiling pot of the world. Each person are of unique and outstanding character, with each corner easily romanticized. it is no wonder why most of literature and cinema is in love with the place.

After a personal experience as a gay nightclub denizen and after the AIDS crisis, photographer Richard Renaldi has rediscovered a new appreciation for the urban landscape and the regular New Yorker. In his new series, Renaldi was strolling around the streets of Manhattan on early Sunday mornings with his large format camera, looking for spontaneous sights of fancy. Each photograph and portrait are of singular mood, with captions according to the time they were taken.

The first museum show of Renaldi, the Richard Renaldi: Manhattan Sunday will be at the George Eastman Museum in New York, Jan. 21.
