Item description for Horst Hamann New York by Horst Hamann...
In just a few short years, Horst Hamann has risen to the forefront of artists whose unique vision of New York is as monumental and impressive as the city itself. Critics everywhere applauded his wildly successful, New York Vertical, hailing it as "a standout," (New York Post) and "the perfect book for anyone who as ever stood spellbound on a Midtown street corner" (Forbes).
Now Hamann once again pays homage to his adopted city in this collection of new photographs that capture not only New York's towering magnificence, but also its breadth and promise. In beautifully composed panoramas, portraits and streetscapes that are at once astonishing and intimate, Hamann shows us New York through the eyes of a lover, visitor, friend and adversary. We see the city's stark angles and gentle shadows; its majestic forests of pillars and skyscrapers; its graceful curves, arches, and lines; the welcoming embrace of its interior spaces and its alienating walls of steel and concrete. To Horst Hamann, New York is a living, breathing beast, embodying all of man's greatest glories and his basest tendencies. For the reader, his photographs offer an unparalleled experience, allowing us to see, as if for the first time, a city with a heart and soul all its own.
