This dazzling collection of photography by award-winning photographer Allan Tannenbaum offers a tour-de-force journey into the visual glories of 1970s New York. Iconic black-and-white and color photos from the Big Apple’s glamorous era paint an immersive picture of how the fashion gurus and stylish personalities of the decade really influenced the way everyone dressed in public life. With photographs of the Stones, John Lennon, Andy Warhol and the myriad of celebrities and scene-makers that surrounded them, Tannenbaum’s lens provides an insider’s look at the wild fashions, flamboyant clothes and accessories of the 70s. (Betsey Johnson, Perry Ellis, and Thierry Mugler are some of the key fashion icons represented in the fashion section.) Each section of the book focuses on a different aspect of the decade—from nightlife, fashion, and street scene to arts and entertainment and music, accompanied by insightful essays written by well-known commentator/observer/celebrity contributors.
