The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation can always be counted on for striking vintage photographs of New York City, thanks to its extensive archive, which includes images, postcards, and other ephemera from the past century.
The organization recently acquired images by former Village Voice photographer Fred McDarrah, who captured many of Greenwich Village’s famous iconoclasts—Bob Dylan, Willem de Kooning (pictured above), Andy Warhol, and more—in its bohemian heyday.
And now, some of McDarrah’s prints are available for purchase: GVSHP has partnered with the late photographer’s estate to sell a dozen of his photos, of subjects as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, Jane Jacobs, and Nico, with all proceeds benefiting the organization. An 8x10 print goes for $300, and an 11x14 goes for $350—not exactly cheap, but they’ll likely make the Dylan-loving baby boomer in your life very happy.
