Classic, Files, Photographs, Rickford, York
Ricky Powll is most recognizable for his journalistic photography. He has worked mostly in taking photos of famous rappers, this work can be found in his other book “Oh Snap”. The photography style shown here is Powell’s attempt to show the city and people of New York in the eighties. Powell worked as a bike messenger and nightclub busboy in the eighties. The material presentes in this book is mostly photos taken of people as Powell bumps into them in his travels through New York City. There are no glamorous shots, or composed photos with zoom ins, but art at random. Powell found a bunch of people back in the day. You may recognize the people on the cover of the book, rapper Method Man, artists Basquiat and Andy Warhol, and actor Lawrence Fishburn. There are many pictures of everyday people too. Each picture has a caption of how, and where, it was taken. Powell states in the intro that his home town “feels like a theme park now”, this is his attempt to capture how it was back in the day.
