Empire of Passion (1978). French poster by Roland Topor.
It’s difficult to imagine New York City without the massive throngs of people, but that’s exactly what you’ll find in the work of photographer Duane Michals.
Starting in the 1960s, Duane would roam the streets of New York City in the early hours of the morning when the bustling city was remarkably quiet.

Yoshiichi Hara “Shokujo Roku” - “Record of Women” 1983
"Great photography and social history, something of an early version of Nobuyoshi Araki’s "Tokyo Lucky Hole." A fascinating record of women working in Japan’s sex industry. Most of these photos were taken during the 1970’s. A cult figure, Hara dedicated his art to documenting the lives of showgirls, bargirls and prostitutes - preparing for work, at work, after work - backstage, on stage, at home and at leisure."
True, Yoshiichi Hara is unjustly overlooked.
