Allan Tannenbaum discovered photography in the 1960s. His dream career as a photojournalist became reality when he joined the SoHo Weekly News , a downtown New York City newspaper, in 1973. For several years he covered the city, exploring its every facet - from the underground to the high society - and documenting its political, social and cultural evolution. His photographs, taken during the turbulent 1970s and early 1980s, serve as a lasting record of that era's resolution of ideas, trends, and movements that had begun in the 1960s. SoHo Weekly News folded in 1982, and Tannenbaum went on to become an award-winning photojournalist, with work published in such major international magazines such as Time, Life, Newsweek, Paris Match and Stern.
