Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Don't send anyone these postcards from New York. In Tod Seelie's city, cars burst into flames, punks knock each other off mutant bicycles, and women crowd surf in high heels.
Bright Nights: Photographs of Another New York compiles a decade and a half of pictures from a roiling underground of music and art and noise and mess.
Organized aesthetically, the collection features friends and comrades tromping through basement rock shows and dirty parties, climbing up bridges, and descending into live subway tunnels.
Short essays from Seelie's collaborators, including Ian Vanek of the band Japanther and street artist Swoon, make sense of the senseless. These are not the snapshots New York City wants you to see.
