Twenty-five years after his seminal 1988 book, 'Invisible City', Ken Schles revisits his archive and fashions a narrative of lost youth: a delirious, peripatetic walk in the evening air of an irretrievable Downtown New York as he saw and experienced it. 'Night Walk' is a substantive and intimate chronicle of New York’s last pre-Internet bohemian outpost, a stream-of-consciousness portrayal that peels back layers of petulance and squalor to expose the frisson and striving of a life lived amongst the rubble.

Here Schles embodies the flâneur as Susan Sontag defines it, as a “connoisseur of empathy ... cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes.”

We see in 'Night Walk' a new and revelatory Ulysses for the twenty-first century: a searching tale of wonder and desire, life and love in the dying hulk of a ruined American city.

Ken Schles was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1960 and has been making photographic books for over a quarter of a century. He studied photography at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art with William Gedney and was a student of the legendary Lisette Model.
