New York City: Where Everything Happens All at Once

Between the 60s and the 80s, New York was a beacon of aspirational chaos. A crucible of culture, fusing an eccentric palette of grit and glamour, decay and renaissance.

New York was a city in the grip of unrestrained freedom and relentless deterioration: a paradox of extremes.

Product details

“Standalone”: A Complete and Complex Cluster of Human Life

The term “standalone” is understood as something able to operate independently, that it is complete in itself, just like New York.

STANDALONE is built on the complexity and uniqueness of the city, as well as the stories of human life that inhabit it and that make New York City the place where everything happens all at once. A place encompassing human life in a cluster of different forms and variable – all present at the same time.

The Photographer

Jill Freedman

Jill Freedman was a highly respected New York City documentary photographer whose award-winning work is included in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the International Center of Photography, George Eastman House, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the New York Public Library, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, among others. She appeared in solo and group exhibitions throughout the world, and contributed to many prominent publications.

The Monograph

“Standalone”

As a tribute to American photographer Jill Freedman, one of the most important and and influential American documentary photographers of all time, “STANDALONE” is an immersive look into the complexities of human experience.
It’s a photographic journey into the madness of New York City, its city’s streets, subways, and neighborhoods during a time of great change and social unrest.

The Photographer’s Vision

“New York is NOT America. There are more gentle souls, more deranged psyches, more lunatic energies goosing and goading you on here than in the rest of the country combined. If it isn’t happening here, it isn’t happening. Like I said, New York is my town.”

Jill Freedman
