In Scenes Unseen: The Summer of ’78 by Jim Dwyer (New York Times, April 27, 2018) a selection from a long lost treasure trove of 2,924 color slides was rediscovered and shared with the world.
The pictures were made in parks across New York City’s five boroughs late in the summer of 1978. Not one mobile phone. Everyone is present. “Life uncurated.”
Wouldn’t it be fun if someone recognized him or herself or a friend in the one of the photos?
You can see these photos and more from the collection from May 3 through June 14 at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park, 830 Fifth Avenue, near 64th Street in New York.
