It’s our pleasure to wish Len Speier a very happy 89th birthday. Len has been a New York street photography fixture for the past several decades. In the process he has made some incredible images around New York and the world.
In fact, Len is celebrating his birthday during a special show at Daniel Cooney Fine Art in Chelsea, New York City entitled, “Nearly Everybody,” which is composed entirely of his vintage silver gelatin prints! The opening day on September 15 was a huge success, but if you missed it don’t worry there is still time to catch the show – it’s running until October 29, 2016.
To pique your interest, here are a few of Len’s images. His classic shots from various places and decades will inspire you to continue documenting the people, places and hustle and bustle of your own city. Who knows how much you will value the images you take today when your 89th birthday rolls around?
