György Lőrinczy, New York, New York.
"n 1968 the photographer György Lőrinczy took advantage of the Hungarian government’s decision to relax its rigorous laws on citizens travelling abroad. The result was his book New York, New York , which projected a rather less jaundiced view of the Big Apple than that of many home-grown photographers. As a foreigner’s vision, and in terms of photographic outlook, Lőrinczy’s perspective clearly has affinities with that of William Klein, but his manic exuberance seems to run on pure energy, without the psychological tensions that underpin Klein’s more realistic and informed vision of the city."
