Ever since I put out a call for SoHo photos, I've received all kinds of images, of people, places, events from the 1970s through the present. I've included a selection below, the beginning of what I hope turns into a much larger collection that encompasses as many SoHo stories as possible.
Ben Schonzeit, a pioneer of the Photorealist movement, is well-known for his gripping, hyper-realistic depictions of subjects in vivid color. He is also a prolific collage artist and I also discovered, to my delight, that he is a fellow mail artist! His talents are many, but the purpose of my visit to his studio was to view his photograph collection, specifically his photos of old SoHo.
