a new Daylight Digital edition:
A Suspension of Memory
Ken Schles in collaboration with Alan Rapp

Ken Schles’ Invisible City was published in 1988 to wide acclaim, both for Schles’ remarkably strong personal vision, and for its seminal description of New York City’s East Village in all its decaying glory. It was named a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and included in the MoMA’s 1992 exhibit More Than One Photography. Vince Aletti (in the New Yorker) recognized the book as “hellishly brilliant.”
 
Long out of print, a new edition of Invisible City is forthcoming from Steidl, along with a new book of Schles’ work from the same period, Night Walk, expanding Schles’ intimate chronicle of New York’s last pre-Internet bohemian outpost.
 
This new Daylight Digital edition presents images from both works: selections from  Invisible City in addition to premiering select work from the yet-to-be-released Night Walk  — synthesized together for the first time with a collaborative text by Alan Rapp in an original multimedia presentation.

Opening and book signing in Berlin. If you are in that part of Germany, I'd love the pleasure of your company.

In 2008, during the photo festival at Arles, Martin Parr dedicated his Playas book to me: "To Ken, Invisible no longer." Later this month I return to Göttingen, Germany and will go on press with Gerhard Steidl to reprint Invisible City, 26 years after its first publication. Here is a video I made to talk about that project. Music by Live Skull. http://youtu.be/oa1AaRiVmPw
