Experimenting in the 1970s with color film, and commissioned to document buildings and signage in Midtown in violation of the Blight Ordinances, American photographer Maggie Hopp was able to create a very colorful portfolio of images which now look nostalgically benign, a colorful collection of what remained in the 1970s.
In an interview with Mike Foldes, founder and editor-in-chief of Ragazine, Hopp revisited her archives of Times Square, realized in the late 20th century.
