|Langdon Clay, A and P Car, Buick Le Sabre, 14th Street between 7th and 8th Avenue, 1974|
I first came across the picture above in 1978 - I still have the flyer for the exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, 26 July-24 September 1978. I loved it then and, nearly forty years later, I love it still, as I love Clay's whole series: Cars: New York City, 1974-76.
Below is my selection of his pictures; see the selection at Polka Galerie, here.
