About Red Eye to New York

Throughout the 1980s, Janet Delaney made last-minute trips to New York on overnight courier plans from San Francisco. The luminous colour photographs she made on these fleeting visits capture the syncopated rhythms of public and private worlds in the theater of the modern city. A landmark collection of street photography, Red Eye to New York brims with the instinctive joy of being out in the world with a day to spend and camera around your neck.
