Now available in a new and expanded editionwith previously unpublished photographs, thisserene and beautiful paean to New York paints aunique picture of the world's most vibrant city,from Central Park to Katz's delicatessen, theFlatiron Building to Battery Park. Imagine a New York devoid of people, its empty streets,bridges, and waterways as silent and magnificent as an AnselmAdams landscape. This is the New York that ChristopherThomas reveals in duotone photographs that are at oncehaunting and nostalgic. Employing a large-format Polaroidcamera, Thomas shot many of these images in the early hoursof the day or with long exposures. The result is a rare glimpse ofthe Brooklyn Bridge without pedestrians; Grand Central Stationwithout commuters; Fifth Avenue without cars, vendors,workers, or shoppers. Not only do Thomas's photographsallow viewers to appreciate the spatial and architecturalsplendor of these New York City icons, but they also evokea dreamlike feeling that is unusual in visual depictions of thecity. Timeless, yet unmistakably contemporary, this collectionby an internationally acclaimed photographer is an importantaddition to the pantheon of photographic essays of New York'smost beloved settings.
