From renowned American artist Ross Bleckner comes this stunning and thought-provoking collection of more than one hundred collages assembled from clippings of New York Times articles. Chosen for their personal significance to Bleckner and for the ways in which they later affected his work, the fragments of text and image in some pieces are unadorned; in others, the artist has painted around the clippings in watercolor and then photographed them in order to create a timeless and meaningful work of art. In My Life in the New York Times these pieces are brought together in a magnificent paperback collection.
