A Portrait of A Record Store
Bleecker Bob’s Record Store in Greenwich Village was as much a timepiece as the records they sold. Representing an era that may or may not have faded away as many enthusiasts still collect, cherish and respect the medium despite the unstoppable force of digital.
"Without Records" A Portrait of a Record Store features photographs taken during Bleecker Bob's Records' final business hours in Greenwich Village. They pay tribute to Robert "Bleecker Bob" Plotnik's dream to keep the music playing- on vinyl and to all the patrons and artists who enjoyed the ride.
The store was a club house and library of sorts but is now planned to become a frozen yogurt shop.
(All photographs were taken on site at the record store and the background is the actual wooden floor at the shop.)
