For 40 years, Alan Berliner has collected press photos that he has cut out from the New York Times and archived carefully. Historical, tragic and curious moments captured by the newspaper's photographers, which together form a panoramic portrait of the world's – and not least New York's – modern history since the 1970s. 'Letter to the Editor' is driven by an energetic desire to tell a story, which with few words and simple images can bring back an entire era. Berliner's intellectual wingspan and cultural overview is enormous, but his presentation is simple and always spot-on. A captivating love letter to the printed press and to a city.
