SKU: Red Eye by Frank Fournier


The photographs that comprise Red Eye - Seventies New York were made after Frank Fournier’s arrival into the United States during a time when New York City was on the verge of bankruptcy and going through a major transition due to many years of fiscal mismanagement, deteriorating infrastructure, the NYPD police strike and the famous blackout of 1977. All, while the city threw a big celebration for the Bicentennial of the United States and the Yankees winning the World Series. Fournier, unaware of the news concerning the city's downswing, photographed with great intent the light of NY, intense and brutal at times; other times soft and sweet, leaving a mark in his archive between his photojournalist assignments.

Utilizing Kodachrome film, he set out to document all that he could see, noticing a propensity of the color red in his work to reflect the city in its throws, the people, and the overall unspoken turmoil that was unknowingly being experienced by all.
