Equator Books on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA is displaying a bunch of Chuck Rapaport’s Times Square photos from 1965 until April 1st. The photos are also available to buy as limited-edition, high-quality prints. This one below shows an NYPD squadroom in the midst of a busy night, moments of personal drama, anguish and intrigue interred in the very gestures, poses and expressions of the subjects. The picture has the pitch of silver-screen, the cast of a vintage Law & Order episode, and the brutish tones of a night that holds only irreverence for good will.

The photo measures 19″ x 14″ and costs $350 from Equator Books.
