80s Street Style: Amy Arbus' On the Street

Sometimes, Amazon recommends the coolest things, as it recently did when it recommended the book/photo anthology On the Street, by Amy Arbus (Amazon). I was intrigued by the synopsis and decided to research more about it. Apparently Amy Arbus work as photographer for the Village Voice from 1980-1990. She took impromptu street style photos of NYC citizens for a monthly fashion feature for the publication. The book collects 70 of the best shots from that time period and ends up being a really cool time capsule of the decade's counter culture fashion. I'm waiting to receive my book in the mail, but until then I can enjoy the photos below.
