Flashback: Irwin Klein
Only the Dead Know Brooklyn
Plus: the skint

In our occasional Flashback series, we look at photographers over the years who have been especially good at capturing New York at the time they lived, many of whom have been unjustly neglected. We've already featured Irwin Klein, but we heard from his brother Alan that he had found a new trove of images from the early 70s. They were part of a project the photographer had been working on at the time of his death called Only the Dead Know Brooklyn. For more information about Mr. Klein's photography, you can contact Domeischel Gallery and check out this Facebook page.

In the Flashback Series:
Paul Himmel
Argent Editions
Irwin Klein
Louis Stettner
Robert Otter

Harold Roth
