The Rickford Files. Classic New York Photographs

New York: St. Martin's Griffin, 2000. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's stiff illustrated paper wraps.

"To me, street photography is like my transistor radio…The playlist is infinite." Signed first edition of late New York street photographer Ricky Powell’s second book. Born in Brooklyn and raised in the West Village, Powell began his career chronicling the city’s developing hip hop scene and as the unofficial tour photographer and "fourth member" of the Beastie Boys. He quickly became a downtown fixture, making appearances at the Fun Gallery, Danceteria, the Roxy, and elsewhere while capturing snapshots of celebrities, artists, and local eccentrics. Encapsulating what he considered "the real New York," this collection comprises images of Debi Mazar, Method Man, Cindy Crawford, Sandra Bernhard, Spike Lee, the Coppolas, Kirsty Hume, Lisa Bonet, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Herbie Hancock, and many others. Illustrated with color and black-and-white plates; with an introduction by television producer and writer Sacha Jenkins. Signed by Powell to the title page. Moderate rubbing and edgewear, with some creasing to cover laminate at spine and sticker residue to lower wrap. Very good. Item #8670
