Gun Roze

Toronto based photographer Gun Roze in his photography series ‘Manhattan 1982’ shows the everyday life of people in NYC. Gun encapsulates this life in such an alluring, charming and elegant style that each photograph catches spectator’s eyes and minds and gives a freeway to dive into a magnificent past.

“As a mid-20s artist and photographer living in Toronto, NYC immediately presented everything I had seen in the media, fantasized about and beyond. In 1982 I intentionally returned for two stays to photograph and capture the feeling of the city I was enchanted by. Shooting on the streets in the early 80s was a much freer experience than the guardedness with the public today.” - Gun Roze
