In 1982, I was the first artist/photographer to compile the Hambleton shadow wall paintings into book form. Myinitial1982 volume (an original edition of 200 signed and numbered handmade books) was sold independently. They are now included in many public and private collections. Over the span of several years, I photographed over 100 of Richard’s shadow paintings, of which 73 are included in this second volume. The NightLife series, 1981-89, was an ex-citing episode in the contemporary art scene in New York City, and I am glad to have been a part of it. I hope NightLife serves as a comprehensive historic documentation of this memorable body of work by Richard Hambleton.
