Copyright ©2002 Cynthia Maris Dantzic
Jerry Dantzic, pictured here with his son and archivist Grayson, was a photojournalist whose work in the 1950s is a glorious tribute to the city of New York and its people. His gutsy, gritty and exhilarating prints reveal all the richness and diversity of the era: glamorous celebrities, swanky nightclubs, the romance of young lovers, Coney Island, Orchard Street, and New Year's Eve in Times Square.

Jerry Dantzic's photographs have appeared for the past forty-five years in such publications as the The New York Times, Life, Look, 2wice, Vanity Fair, and American Photo. His work has been shown in countless solo and group shows, and is now in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Museum of Modern Art. He taught for many years at Long Island University and at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.
