Peep Show by Sean Maung.

Photographs by Sean Maung

Published by Alldayeveryday. Edition of 30, 2013.

[Purchase: sold out]

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.
