    The New York City 'Landscape'

    Christopher Bliss is a photographer who understands architectural landscapes and probably few other photographers have been able to capture the spectrum of styles, changes, majesty, and assembled mass as Bliss. This book is simply images. Yes there is a brief but poignant introduction by Susan Bliss, PhD suggesting why new York is unique among the cities of the world and myriad reasons why this is so (in five languages), but the remainder of the portfolio is devoted to the visual impact that New York has made on Chrisptopher Bliss.

    The images are in both crystalline black and white and full color and it become obvious that there is an unwritten narrative in progress as the book opens with views of the Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi 1885 sculpture, The Statue of Liberty, a gift of appreciation from France to the United States that continues to stand boldly as a welcoming beacon of promise to the immigrants of the world. From there Bliss takes us through the noise of the city, with images of rushing people and cars accompanying the slowly elevated view of the superstructures above the level of the land. From both aerial shots to image composed on the ground Bliss manages to highlight the extraordinary museum of architecture the city presents to the viewer, calling our attention to periods of style in design and building art that walking the sidewalks fails to unveil. The bridges, the parks, the waterways, the park benches of people, the little stores, the vistas of the entire skyline, the images of the arts institutions, photographs by day and by night - rarely have we been so fortunate to see this much of the megalopolis.

    But in addition to the sheer grandeur of the special place named New York, NY Christopher manages to insert the human vantage, making this monograph invitingly personal as well as being a profound survey of urban architectural history.

    Stunning photography - A New York Show Stopper

    The photography captured in Christopher Bliss¿s new release 'New York' is simply stunning. Anyone who has been to New York, lived there, or wants to visit will value each and every photo as reminder or a promise of that great city. Whether the photo is an atmospheric black-or-white or eye-popping color shot, each is substantial in the feelings it evokes and the moments it captures. My favorites? How about the glossy center spread in black and white of midtown Manhattan after dark, illuminated with thousands of pinpoints of light. Or, the photo that captures the entire 20-story Flatiron building in the reflection of a puddle. Or, the Statue of Liberty perfectly framed by a window on Ellis Island. Or, the close-up shots of bridges in Central Park with scrollwork and stonework on their railings that rival the beauty of the grandest building. Or, that final pair of magnificent color spreads of Manhattan -- one facing uptown, the other downtown. Susan Bliss¿s foreword is a compelling opener to the series of photos and not to be missed. Looking through this book is like walking along the streets of New York. You never know what will show up, but it is always alive, always edgy, and always profound. Kudos to Mr. Bliss for his amazing opus.
