Alfred Hitchcock. Muhammad Ali. Meryl Streep. LL Cool J. From cultural icons to powerful news stories, James Hamilton captured it all. In Uncropped, the legendary Village Voice photojournalist and many of his notable collaborators recount the stories behind unforgettable images taken over the course of a forty year career. A stunning visual chronicle of New York City and a window into the heyday of alternative print media.

“A necessary document for anyone who cares about great journalism.”

Screen Slate
