Overview

At dawn, the streets of New York resonate with a life of its own: muted, subdued, and mysterious. Award-winning photographer Jean-Michel Berts captures the city that never sleeps in moments of dream-like serenity. The city's greatest landmarks and views are captured here like never before, as buildings, bridges, completely deserted streets, trees, and empty flights of stairs take on a poetic, ethereal 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 masterpiece. Each print is given ample breathing space in a GIFTS-volume whose opulent trim size befits the spectacular quality of the shots.

Meet the Author

Despite a promising scientific career, Jean-Michel Berts chose a different path - to become a photographer. With his first Rolleiflex camera, he became sensitive to the effects of light.
Since the eighties, thanks to Daniel Podva, he has worked as a still life photographer for several well-known cosmetics and perfume brands. Then he decided to work on his own. After a succesful beginning, Jean Michel decided to devote himself to still life photography.
