Chalfant’s iconic photographs of graffiti-covered subways helped launch New York City’s graffiti movement of the 1970s-80s into an international phenomenon. Henry Chalfant: 1980 presents never-before published images and new essays from some of the most celebrated voices of the height of New York subway art. Focused on 1980, a notoriously dangerous time in the city of New York and an exceptional year for subway art, this catalogue features 30 full-color plates of Chalfant’s subway photographs and essays by cultural critic Carlo McCormick, hip hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy, famed graffiti writer and artist Lee Quiñones, graffiti historian and former writer Jayson Edlin, and Henry Chalfant.
