A year after moving to New York City, photographer Paul McDonough started documenting its bustling street life. From the dog park to Wall Street, his photographs captured a vibrant city in the throws of the progressive 60s and 70s, each of his captivating images holding small gems, hidden for the viewer to discover. McDonough has lived in New York ever since, and his love of the city shows through in the tender treatment of his subjects. Find out more, in the artists own words, at The Paris Review.
