How to capture the City That Never Sleeps in chilling moments of serenity? Award winning photographer Jean-Michel Berts does just that in this epic visual showpiece of to the world greatest city. At dawn, the streets of New York resonate with a life of its own: muted, subdued, and mysterious. That s precisely the moment in which Berts has elected to capture it.
The City s greatest landmarks and views are captured 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 greatest city, seen as a virtuoso sculptor s masterpiece. Each of the print is given ample breathing space in a gift-volume whose opulent trim size befits the spectacular quality of the shots.
