O’Rourke Bar (by William Gedney, 1960)

27

La colección de Gedney abarca los años 1940 a 1989, y sus fotos del Bar O’Rourke en Brooklyn alrededor de 1960 son bastante memorables. “Gedney registra la vida de otros con notable claridad e intensidad. Estas fotografías, junto con sus cuadernos y escritos, iluminan la visión de un hombre intensamente privado que, como escritor y fotógrafo, reveló las vidas de los demás con impresionante sensibilidad”. El ambiente de barrio alegre del O’Rourke y sus personajes son el centro del escenario en el club nocturno de Nueva York.
