New Yorkers presents over 70 intimate portraits of people in their apartments and studios – captured in unique style by renowned New York street photographer Sally Davies – along with their testimonies and tales, and their illuminating observations on what it means to be a New Yorker. Considering the origins and ambitions of its subjects, it captures an intoxicating glimpse of New York’s alternative scene before its actors are washed away on a wave of gentrification. A cast of drag artists, store owners, doctors, dog walkers, psychics, cab drivers, writers, artists, tattoo artists, gallery owners, photographers, film producers, designers, dancers and musicians (including such legendary New Yorkers as Laurie Anderson, Danny Fields and William Ivey Long) reveal the diversity, eccentricity, creativity and humanity at the heart of this iconic city.
