You can practically smell the coconut oil: Photographer Thomas Hoepker takes us back to New York City in 1983 with this evocative image of a rooftop sunbather on a lonely tenement somewhere in Midtown.
It looks hot up there with the black tar roof. Note the TV antennas!
More of Hoepker’s New York photos spanning many decades can be seen here.
