New York street photography with emotion

New York City street photography by the Italian photographer Ruggero Rugarli. This unique collection celebrates the black & white NYC street photography with spirit, emotion and talent.

The "New York Instantané" collection presents 66 of the 1,480 shots that Ruggero Rugarli took between 1960 and 1976 in New York City.

During this time period, he visited New York twelve times among which five times in 1968 only. Ruggero would stroll the New York streets for a few hours with his Leica and his curious eye, reviving the spirit of the great American and French street photographers of the last century.

"...a great picture has a soul - the clicking immortalizes the subject's spirit and brings the emotions to the viewers" Massimo Nava, New York soul, the American dream.
