RANDOM New York City represents a small overview of Marty's relationship
with the camera and life behind the lens and vividly demonstrative of
his true affection for the city of his birth. Martin Fishman documented life in New York City from the 1960s through the early 2000s. His black and white photography was visual poetry that captured emotion, attitude and luster one impromptu moment at a time. His camera and mind's eye sought out the truth of New York rooted in its inhabitants and their experiences. Mr. Fishman's black and white street photography encompasses the essence of many famous events and gatherings such as Wigstock, the Easter Hat Parade along 5th Avenue, Purim and the Halloween Parade as well as everyday quality time around NYC. He found wit, shot it, developed it and framed it. He sought out the vulnerability of a momentary moment and took it back with him as proof that it exists.
