V I S I O NS OF THE '70'S AND '80'S
ACROSS TIME IN BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY
by Norma Felsenthal Gerber
NYC in the 70s and 80s was a time of changes. Hippies in Washington Sq. Park,
the Bicentennial celebrated at the Easter Parade, Citicorp arising, new shopping malls. Central Park portraits I made capture what is no more: sailor snakeseller,
black nannies in uniform. People looked for sociability but often found only alienation. I used b&w film to characterize the times.
I have had a varied professional life as a business editor/ journalist in the fragrance, cosmetic fields, a speechwriter for public affairs, an educator in English literature and writing, and as a photographer traveling widely with work in galleries and museums.
