How do you capture the City that never sleeps in chilling moments of sereni-ty? Award-winning photographer Jean-Michel Berts does just that in this epic, visual showpiece of the world’s greatest city. At dawn, the streets of New York resonate with a life of their own: muted, subdued, and mysterious. That’s pre-cisely the moment in which Berts has chosen to capture it. The city’s greatest landmarks and views are captures here like they never have been before, framed by Berts’s camera obscura. Buildings, bridges, completely deserted streets, and even its trees and empty flights of stairs take on a poetic, ethereal, almost dream-like quality. Much more than a hymn, this photographic gem is a moving homage to the world’s greatest city, seen as a virtuoso sculptor’s mas-terpiece. Each print is given ample breathing space in a gift-volume whose opulent size befits the spectacular quality of the photographs.
