Born in Munich, Sepp Werkmeister has over the course of the last decades made a name for himself as one of Germany's leading jazz photographers. He created insightful black-and-white portraits of all of the greats, from Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald to Oscar Peterson and Miles Davis in Munich, New York and at international festivals. His New York cityscapes of the 1960s and 1970s, which provide fascinating insights into the everyday life of the American metropolis, have remained entirely unknown, however. Werkmeister captured the entire panorama of New York's urban society using his Rolleiflex camera: the rubbish, the stranded and the homeless on the one hand, and the rich and fashionably dressed inhabitants on the other hand. This publication presents more than 120 pictures from the photographer's archive.
