Title Edge of the City

Author Pratt, Charles


ISBN: 9783923922666

Condition: New

Format: Hardcover



For most of the time he worked as a photographer, and parallel to creating the work with which he would establish his reputation, Charles Pratt (1926?1976) gradually assembled a body of work he called ?The Edge of the City.? Having been born and raised in New York, Pratt found himself increasingly drawn to the edges ?with a sense of urgency, knowing that they may be gone tomorrow ? not just extended but really, finally gone.? Pratt documented open spaces threatened by change: the New Jersey meadows, the New York harbor, and the areas along the rivers, finally zeroing in on the heart of Manhattan. From scenes of distant highways to close-ups of the littered roadbeds, these photographs of a bygone era preserve the process of change.
