Very nice initiative to bring together photographs of Martha Cooper in the form of a souvenir object : “A journey through time, the development of street culture and the City’s Soul. With her trusty Nikon, Martha Cooper has documented memorable moments in her beloved New York (…) 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 carreer on the city streets…” Through 16 postcards, we find the spirit of New York, the one that saw the emergence of one of the most influential cultures of the end of the twentieth century.
