Willy Spiller: New York 1977 - 1985

Willy Spiller A train to Far Rockaway NY 1978 Bildhalle Amsterdam

From the legendary parties at Studio 54 to the emergence of hip-hop culture, Willy Spiller (1947) captured the speed, energy and absurdity of New York as it moved through the 70s and 80s. His technique falls somewhere between fine art and documentary photography, always demonstrating a keen curiosity towards humanity and the compassion that connected people in such a rapidly-changing metropolis.
