James and Kar­la Mur­ray have been cap­tu­ring impec­ca­bly accu­ra­te pho­to­graphs of New York City sin­ce the 1990s. In the cour­se of their tra­vels throug­hout the city’s boroughs they’ve also taken gre­at care to docu­ment the sto­ries behind the sce­ne­ry. The Mur­rays have ren­de­red the out of the way bode­gas, can­dy shops and record stores just as faith­ful­ly as the his­to­ri­cal­ly important insti­tu­ti­ons and well known restau­rants, bars and cafes.

From the Stone­wall Inn to the Browns­vil­le Bike Shop and The Pink Pus­sy­cat to Smith and Wolen­sky, the Mur­rays reveal how New York’s beleague­red mom & pop busi­ness stand in sharp con­trast to the city’s rapidly evol­ving cor­po­ra­te faca­de. The aut­hors’ land­mark 2008 book, Store Front, was recent­ly cited in Bookforum’s 20th Anni­ver­s­a­ry issue as having “…demons­tra­ted the para­do­xi­cal power of digi­tal pho­to editing to alter actu­al views in order for us to see more clear­ly what is real­ly the­re.”

James and Kar­la Mur­ray live in New York City and were awar­ded the New York Socie­ty Library’s pres­ti­gious New York City book award in 2012 for their last book, New York Nights.
