In 1981, Raymond Depardon’s La Correspondance New-Yorkaise was published in the Libération newspaper in France. Composed of humorous, observational, photographic notes—and no topical news—the newspaper dedicated a full page to this correspondence every day for a month. It was a pivotal moment both in French photography and in Depardon’s career.

La Correspondance New-Yorkaise marked a turn toward the “new journalism” of the era, which fed on daily life and featured first-person, subjective writing. 36 years later, Depardon returned to New York in 2017, continuing his rare portrait of one city’s unexpected spaces.
