More often than Leo DiKaprio and Robert De Niro in movies of Martin Scorsese we can see only New York!
The Big Apple is certainly has a lead part in artistic life of the legendary filmmaker.
There are 14 of 20 Scorsese`s movies were devoted to New York.
American cinematographer Robert Kolodny inspired by relationships of Martin and NYC created a short movie «Scorsese`s New York»
In his video Robert used the parts of earlier films «Taxi Driver»(1976), «Raging Bull» (1980) «New York, New York» (1976) «After Hours» (1985) and the new «The Wolf of Wall Street» (2013)
This newsreel allows to see all changes in street life of the city which Martin Scorsese had described during his long and successful career.
The night of July 13, 1977, will be remembered as one of the worst in New York City history. In this evening the sun went down the horizon and a storm got and more closer to New York. Series of lightning bolts all over town and power relay system, then — overloading, the failure and switching off of all light sources in a city.
I’ve always had a thing for documentary photography especially when it comes to people and street life. Those pictures work like a time machine and make it possible to give you an idea or a feeling of a time period you weren’t part of. I have never been to Harlem (not yet), but from the photos there is a vibrancy to it, that is hard to explain. I love the style, the little spontaneous snapshots that picture people in their normal, not perfect, yet great way! Especially due to the big 70`s comeback in fashion and the stereotype hippie outfits all over the place, it’s nice to see something authentic and real from that time, and a different impression than the white long haired woodstock girlie that seems to be all over the lookbooks these days!

I was shooting some kids building a clubhouse in a vacant lot on the Lower Eastside and a guy started yelling at me to go away. So I got in my car and he came running up and motioned for me to roll down the window. I saw that he had a knife so I refused but before I could start the car and drive away, he kicked in the window. This was in the 70’s while I was working on the series of photos I published in Street.
I photographed in a spirit of historic preservation. I thought that graffiti was a phenomenon unique to New York City that would disappear and I would have a record of it. I never predicted that New York style graffiti would spread worldwide. Of course I also hoped that I would be able to publish stories about graffiti that would help me reach my primary goal of becoming a solvent freelance photographer.
