Burckhardt, Rudy - New York Moments: Fotografien Und Filme new in plastic!
"At 21, Rudy Burckhardt moved from Switzerland to New York City with poet-playwright Edwin Denby. He became an essential participant in the burgeoning modern art scene of painters, musicians, dancers, writers and the like. Taking up photography and filmmaking, Burckhardt 'photographed and filmed his friends, including many New York School artists, as well as myriad views of his adopted city' and produced substantial bodies of work in each, blending them together seamlessly in content and style." - Bruce Posner
"Burckhardt was best known as a photographer and filmmaker whose primary subject was the New York cityscape: its people, architecture, fleeting details, and ceaseless vitality. He approached films as if they were as easily and intuitively made as photographs, with a distinctive lightness of touch and a grasp of the medium's different possibilities."
