Iconic New York
The new edition of the classic "Iconic New York" surprises with previously unpublished photographs of the world-famous metropolis on the Hudson River, now in an even larger format. Christopher Bliss, is a true New Yorker, and who else could depict this great city in a more authentic way? Because there is so much more to the probably most famous city on the U.S. East Coast than the Empire State Building, Time Square and the Statue of Liberty. It is the hidden squares and buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens that reflect the city's culture, everyday life and attitude to life.
Bliss knows them all and he has photographed them all. The photo artist's work, compiled over many years, is exhibited in several galleries and is installed as a permanent exhibition at the Museum of New York City. For all USA lovers and fans of New York, this coffee-table book is a must-have in the bookcase. Discover the city's landmarks, get to know the people who live there and get an idea of the turbulent life in the megacity. In his inspiring coffee table book "Iconic New York", he takes his readers by the hand and guides them through his home city, a polyglot melting pot of the most diverse cultures. In moving pictures, he tells how he himself experiences and loves the Big Apple, shows the unique architecture, which is characterised by the topographically determined narrowness, and gives deep insights into the city life of the locals.
