The publication Side Walk takes the reader into an unprecedented journey through Frank Horvat’s emblematic series he produced in New York between 1982 and 1986 combining iconic photographs and unpublished images found in his archives with the complicity of the photographer and his daughter. A personal series he developed with great freedom outside of his assignments that will turn out to be decisive in his transition from fashion photography to more personal work. As a urban stroll, the book is conceived upon visual associations that have emerged over the years. It shows the contemporaneity of this body of work and the extraordinary talent of Horvat as a colourist. 

The photographer documents here a period in his lifetime in the American city where we can already identify his favorite themes: people, the city’s absurdity and its contradictory beauty. A selection of excerpts from his journal take the reader in the intimacy of his New York experience unveiling as well his interrogations as a street photographer. While a fictional correspondence with Horvat specially written for the book by filmmaker Amos Gitai, gives a new light on this multifaceted series.
