DPI Alum Richard Renaldi's (BFA '90) new book Manhattan Sunday from Aperture was featured in both The New York Times and Photograph Mag. A selection of photographs from the book are currently on display at the Eastman Museum in Rochester, NY.
The monograph is Renaldi's fourth book, a culmination of two passions: photography and NYC nightlife. Renaldi began working on the series in 2010, photographing people as they exited clubs and made their way home. In the early hours of Sunday mornings he would park his Wisner 8-by-10 view camera on the sidewalk, snapping shots of partiers as they came out into the sunlight. "I knew that I wanted these to be sort of more dreamlike and a fantasy," Renaldi told the Times.
Renaldi has had his work exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the U.S., Asia, and Europe. He has published three previous monographs, Figure and Ground (2006), Fall River Boys (2009), and Touching Strangers (2014). He was also named a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in Photography in 2015. www.renaldi.com
