Harlem: A Century in Images: Winner of the 2010 Photography Award from The New York Society Library

We are pleased to announce that Harlem: A Century in Images is the winner of the 2010 Photography Award from The New York Society Library.

The New York Society Library’s New York City Book Awards, established in 1996, honor books of literary quality or historical importance that, in the opinion of the selection committee, evoke the spirit or enhance appreciation of New York City. It is not necessary that the city be the major subject of the book, but it must play an essential, invigorating role beyond that of the setting.

‘Handcrafted Modern’: Details of designers’ homes

“In 2006, armed with her trusty Mamiya RZ67 camera, 40 rolls of Kodak Portra film, and the lofty vision of a book about the personal habitats of iconic midcentury-modern designers, San Francisco photographer Leslie Williamson initiated a little bit of trickery to shoot the first project on her list. [F]our years later, Williamson, [r]ealized her ambition with Handcrafted Modern.”
