Overview

The light of New York is revelatory, dramatic, and argumentative, as if its job were to pull the inhabitants of the city back from their harsher conclusions about the nature of the place.
The city may seem narrow, frenetic, and confined, but over this can ride a cool smiling sky that stretches gently to a comforting infinity.
If you surrender properly to the whirl of motion in New York, the seemingly chaotic action will cease. . . . In a mirror image of this attribute, the city can bring a frozen image to life as if it actually were moving, as if it were three-dimensional, as if it carried sound, and as if it were not an image but, somehow, real.
Tourist postcards of New York abound, but for sheer artistry, none can compare with Nathaniel Lieberman's breathtaking photographs of this magical city. These thirty awe-inspiring images are a perfect evocation of the astonishing light and extraordinary vistas that define New York.
