Description

"New York at the time was full of raw energy. The city seemed to be run by young artists. And while the city itself wasn't young, it felt as if anything could happen... Robert somehow succeeded in capturing the excitement and raw power — as well as the sense of risk and danger — in New York at that moment."

Eric Barsness, Model for Robert Longo's Men in Cities, in conversation with Sotheby's, 25 March 2015
