In the early 1940s, Swiss-born photographer and experimental filmmaker Rudy Burckhardt focused his photography on finding beauty in the uncelebrated and untidy details of life in and around Astoria, Queens, New York. This book contains 35 gelatin silver prints of his seminal photographs of Astoria. For the first time, Burckhardt's carefully constructed, filmlike sequences - the unique intersection of his work in photography and film - will be enjoyed by the public at large.
