PLACE OF BIRTH
Everything came together with Steve. The music, the graphics, the photography. A hybrid artist, we met him in South Africa on an Agnès b. shoot and he was keen to show us his archives in New York.
He had spent 30 years working out of the same studio on the Hudson River, with pre-shoot film tests in his different cameras, collages on the windows.
And in the end, a Portraits de Villes for New York that focused only on New Jersey. Steve was also a precursor for the layout of our books, his images came out of their frames for the first time.
When we came to thank him at the end of our time together, he asked shyly whether he could dedicate the book to Sharon. His cat! I wonder where Sharon is today. We miss Steve.
