"Something was happening and everybody knew it. I can tell you one thing: it was a lot of fun". With these lines Jeannette Montgomery Barron opens Scene, the book that is an intense photographic gallery of portraits of artists, gallerists, critics, dealers and personalities from the New York art world in the 1980’s. More than a book, the volume is a personal diary where the photographer has jotted down notes, collected photographs shot in studios, homes and clubs, letters, and mementos of events linked to her life in New York in the Eighties, further enriched by artists' recollections of that period. A journey that certainly does not want to be philological but intimate and minimalistic, in its attempt to convey the sense of a special moment in time to those who had not experienced it.
