URBAN 2021: Jeff Rothstein’s “Gotham Memories” wins the exhibition-prize at the Poreč Museum (Croatia)

From Tuesday 3 August to Thursday 30 September 2021 the Poreč Museum (Croatia) will host the URBAN Photo Awards 2021 exhibition-prize.

Elena Uljančić, director of the Museum and juror of the competition, has selected the project: Gotham Memories: New York City Images Of The 1970s And 1980s by New York photographer Jeff Rothstein.

“Being a native New Yorker, I feel that my city is the most exciting in the world. It’s uniqueness, high energy level, and diversity of people and architecture make it a perfect city to document in photographs. This was especially true in the gritty 1970s and 1980s, when these images were taken.  Though they are evocative of a New York City that no longer exists, I feel that they still have a certain timeless quality.”

Museum’s opening hours: Monday-Sunday 10.00-22.00.
