HE PURPOSE OF Black Star, according to photojournalism mentor Howard Chapnick, "is not to scoop the wire service or staff photographer, but to fill the gap with the kind of in depth coverage that press and business do not always have time, men or other resources for."

IN THE EARLY DAYS we were filling that gap on our home turf - New York City. Photographers like John Hugelmeyer took hundreds of photos documenting city life, from shopping to transportation to homeless shelters.
  FOR THE FIRST TIME, photographers were breaking the shell of candy-coated sweetness, and seeking out the hard-boiled drama of real life.

WHILE STILL TAME compared to images we see nowadays, this series of photographs documenting the recruitment and training of the NYPD blue hints at the direction in which photojournalism would soon grow.
