Books Info:

Shot by Both Sides free pdf Cornelia Wilhelm was only nineteen years old when she arrived in New York to work as a photographer's assistant. She felt instantly at home and began to explore and document 'life' at every level in the Big Apple. Working as a set assistant for Pirelli during the day, she spent her nights, her time off, photographing the city and its people, capturing the very essence of 1980's New York from the experimental, to the edgy and exciting, to the commonplace and the everyday. She photographed neighbourhoods like the Bronx and Harlem, with their own unique culture and identity. She visited Coney Island with its worn-down amusements, the boardwalks and the fairground rides, the hot-dog stands and yesterday's "star attractions"- her images are nostalgic and eloquent. Shot By Both Sides is a candid, no-holds-barred portrait of an incredible city, at a turning point in its history- an evocative and lyrical collage of the faces and the lives of people far removed from the glamour and the glitz, at the edge of society, in the city that never sleeps.
