With gritty style and a witty sense of humor, New York photographer Flo Fox has been documenting the streets of New York City since the 1970s. Now in her 60s and battling Multiple Sclerosis, lung cancer, and visual impairment, Flo continues to pursue photography and maintain her adventurous, feisty spirit and dirty sense of humor. No longer able to even hold a camera, she instructs her attendants to take photos for her. As a young, hot New York “chick,” she often used her looks to get what she wanted. These days she leverages her disability. From seducing her way into a tour to the top of the World Trade Center while it was still under construction, to asking passersby to assist with building her own wheelchair ramps, to instructing her aids to take photos, Flo Fox knows what she wants and she gets it.
