This keepsake collection of photographs is a love letter to New York City, presenting diverse images taken by 60 contributors that capture the quirky heart and frenetic life of the city and how it is experienced. These images – juxtaposed on facing pages arranged around a common but often thought-provoking theme — are at once personal and universal views of the world’s favorite city, making this little jewel of a book an irresistible keepsake for anyone who knows New York, from residents and natives to visitors and armchair travelers.
The 60 photographers – most of whom are in the art and design field, though none are famous-took these images as a means to capture their personal experience of the city thereby claiming New York as their own. These images are however also very universal – embodying how everyone, regardless of origin or domicile, seems to have New York in common. Even if we have not seen the Brooklyn Bridge or the view from that part of the High Line from that angle or at that time of day, we can almost all imagine it as if we had been there. To peruse these images is to see the city anew, refreshing the desire to experience it.
