Aside from the impressive architecture, New York boasts a variety of colorful and gritty neighborhoods. Over the past couple of decades much of the place has been gentrified, but there are still many pockets of cultural diversity that, although far from glamorous, are an essential part of what makes New York so distinct. This is particularly the case with many ethnic and immigrant neighborhood that are to this day deeply steeped in their own traditional backgrounds.
It is this combination of grittiness and glamour that more than anything else symbolizes New York, and it is precisely this that the photographer Christopher Bliss tried to capture in 'Iconic New York'. How iconic most of the landmarks in New York are is perhaps best illustrated by the fact that the photographs in this collection don't have the accompanying titles and captions (you can still find them at the end of the book). And yet, I would argue that most people who look through this book will be able to recognize most of the landmarks.
The photographs in this collection vary in style. The book contains artistic shots, photojournalistic shots, and of course your typical travel and landmark photography. Some of the most interesting photos are the black and white high dynamic range (HDR) photos. HDR is ideally suited for photographs of scenes with a really high contrast in the amount of lighting.Lire la suite ›

The images are in both crystalline black and white and full color and it become obvious that there is an unwritten narrative in progress as the book opens with views of the Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi 1885 sculpture, The Statue of Liberty, a gift of appreciation from France to the United States that continues to stand boldly as a welcoming beacon of promise to the immigrants of the world. From there Bliss takes us through the noise of the city, with images of rushing people and cars accompanying the slowly elevated view of the superstructures above the level of the land. From both aerial shots to image composed on the ground Bliss manages to highlight the extraordinary museum of architecture the city presents to the viewer, calling our attention to periods of style in design and building art that walking the sidewalks fails to unveil. The bridges, the parks, the waterways, the park benches of people, the little stores, the vistas of the entire skyline, the images of the arts institutions, photographs by day and by night - rarely have we been so fortunate to see this much of the megalopolis.
But in addition to the sheer grandeur of the special place named New York, NY Christopher Bliss manages to insert the human vantage, making this monograph invitingly personal as well as being a profound survey of urban architectural history. This new book becomes the source for dreams and for memories of a great city. Grady Harp, November 11
Christopher Bliss has effectively captured the spirit of New York in this beautiful collection of his photographs. If you love seeing New York in movies then this will be a very exciting book to view. If you live in New York or have been there then this will be a collectable book you will want to own. I enjoyed seeing pictures of the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Union Square, Times Square and Rockefeller Center. The churches and parks were also very appealing. What I wished for while viewing this book was an explanation of each place, perhaps a little history or an interesting fact. I would not have minded if the pictures had been a little smaller and some room had been made for text. But this book works well as a coffee table book.
