Photography is not only a medium, it is an artistic profession. Behind the mechanics of the camera is the sensitive eye of the master. It would hardly be possible to find a clearer expression of this than Frank Horvat's current illustrated book. From 1979 to 1986, New York was a kind of refuge for the photographer. Here he surrendered himself to the hustle and bustle of the streets, capturing their multifaceted lives. At the same time, he reflected in diary entries on his personal method of finding images and the significance of photography itself. The photographs and writings were created for himself personally, in between commissions. Many of them have never been published before and are presented in this illustrated publication for the first time. Horvat's texts on thin Munken offset paper and his photographs on deep matte photo paper form the two sides of an oeuvre consisting of true photographic art.
