Midnight Kiss, Avenue C by Chris Bickford
Under a waning moon in New York’s Alphabet City, two lovers pause by the glow of a streetlamp.
From the project In the Night , a journey through the the nocturnal world of New York’s “new” Lower East Side and the culture of youth, hip, art, love, loneliness, ambition, and abandon that populates its streets.
“They were the crest of the wave, young, gifted, privileged, serious for now about making art or launching some kind of maverick free enterprise or just being citizens of the world, and not only reasonably confident in their ability to do so but also in their god-given right to do so. And why not, Eric thought, why not…”
–Richard Price, Lush Life
