ABOUT THIS ART
Martha Cooper offers 16 postcards of her very own New York. With her trusty Nikon, she has documented memorable moments in her beloved New York, from the 70s to the present. She was there when the town was bankrupt and the crime rate high, and had a front seat as graffiti and Hip Hop culture developed and Keith Haring began his career on the city streets. She remains in a gentrified New York, post-9/11 with the same love for the city, its culture and its people. Every picture says more than a thousand words, and Martha Cooper: Postcards from New York City is a journey through time, the development of street culture and the city's soul. The cards have been carefully selected from Cooper's thousands of pictures. Some come from her famous books, others are previously unpublished.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Martha Cooper was born in Baltimore and has been shooting photos since the age of three when her dad gave her a camera. She majored in art at Grinnell College, taught English as a Peace Corps volunteer in Thailand, traveled by motorcycle from Bangkok to London and received an anthropology degree from Oxford.
Her most known personal work, the New York City graffiti scene of the early 1980s, began while she was a staff photographer at the New York Post. While shooting feature photos for the paper, she became interested in kids who were playing creatively and through them learned about graffiti writing. She began to document the culture including going to the yards to see how trains were painted. In the 1980s she joined forces with Henry Chalfant who was also photographing graffiti and together they published Subway Art.
