Arthur King began photographing New York City between 1955-8 while studying Industrial Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. The negatives he shot were then lost for nearly forty years. When they were rediscovered, the artist was suddenly and dramatically reconnected to not only his own past, but the city’s past, too.

Arthur King’s work has been exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions, and his photographs are represented in the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of New York.
