Peep Show is a really cool book by NYC-based photographer Sean Maung. He photographed area around Hell’s Kitchen (34th to 42nd street between 8th and 9th avenue). While it is a popular tourist destination, the neighbourhood still has a lot of peep shows. The book reflects the atmosphere of peep show culture and brings back “old New York”. It is also beautifully printed.

It is a beautifully printed photobook.
