Volt Cafe reviews The Forty-Deuce: The Times Square Photographs of Bill Butterworth

Volt Cafe shares its praise for The Forty-Deuce offering an historical account of Butterworth’s photographs: “The Forty-Deuce: The Times Square Photographs of Bill Butterworth, 1983-1984 is a series of photographs capturing a gritty, glamorous, and authentic old-school New York, well before Mickey Mouse took over Times Square and scrubbed it clean. Curators and editors Beatriz and Hilton Ariel Ruiz…have drawn from his work to create a revealing portrait of the Forty-Deuce, inside and out—capturing the unique street life and street style of the era, but also drawing us deeper in, to the peep shows, seedy joints, sex shops, backroom brothels, dimly lit arcades, and low-budget theatres where the action happened.”
