Portrait of a City: New York

Portrait of a City: New York

Reuel Golden  (Author)
Skyscrapers and soul: The most evocative shots of the city that never sleeps Trace the epic story of New York through hundreds of atmospheric photographs, from the mid-19th century to the present day. Follow its fluctuating fortunes, from the wild nights of the Jazz Age and the hedonistic disco era, to the grim days of the Depression and the devastation of 9/11 and its aftermath.

This remarkable collection, now available in a popular Reader´s Edition, pays tribute to the metropolis´ architecture, energy, civic, social, and photographic heritage. From the building of the Brooklyn Bridge to the immigrants arriving at Ellis Island; from the slums of the Lower East Side to the magnificent art deco skyscrapers, the streets, the sidewalks, the chaos, the energy, the ethnic diversity, the culture, the fashion, the architecture, the anger and the complexity of the city is laid out block by block.

Featuring hundreds of images from such celebrated photographers as Alfred Stieglitz, Berenice Abbott, Weegee, Margaret Bourke-White, William Claxton, Ralph Gibson, Ryan McGinley, Steve Schapiro, Garry Winogrand, Larry Fink, Keizo Kitajima, and many, many more, New York: Portrait of a City also includes over a hundred evocative quotations and references from relevant books, movies, shows, and songs. Text in English, French, and German
