Overview

In the tradition of such outstanding publishing achievements as The Art of Florence, The Sistine Chapel, and Helmut Newton's Sumo, Rizzoli International Publications is pleased to announce the publication of New York, New York, an extraordinary visual odyssey through the greatest city in the world. Beautifully photographed by renowned photographer Richard Berenholtz, New York, New York is the ultimate love letter to this spectacular metropolis. Unparalleled in size and beauty, this deluxe numbered edition is destined to become the must-have gift book about New York.

The mere mention of New York invokes passion and respect for artistry, energy, and majesty. With his bold sense of perspective and intimate understanding of what makes New York, New York, Mr. Berenholtz captures the city's unique essence as no one has before. Filled with breathtaking panoramas and architectural details, this luxurious and massive volume showcases the very best the city has to offer--glorious skylines, classic streetscapes, landmark buildings, grand bridges, and such quintessential locations as Times Square, Central Park, and Grand Central Station. Nearly every panoramic photograph is reproduced across a double-page spread, which results in a single magnificent image measuring one foot high and three feet long. Additionally, there are twelve gatefolds, some of which are paired up to create images that unfold to an extraordinary six feet in length!

New York, New York is strictly limited to 5,000 copies worldwide. This elegant edition also includes a numbered, printed image signed by the artist and created exclusively for this book. New York,New York is the ultimate gift book for the New York enthusiast, visiting tourist, longtime city resident, armchair traveler, or anyone who wishes to experience the heart, soul, and enduring beauty that is singular to New York.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This enormous, 12"18" book with 220 carefully composed shots and 12 gatefolds should be the New York photo book of the season. Berenholtz (Panoramic New York) does not match 19th-century Paris photographer Eugene Atget' s elegant encyclopedism, but his compositions exude the patience and calm needed to get the money shots: the Cloisters, afternoon shadows striping the Metropolitan Museum of Art' s solarium, the recently replaced Planetarium, the familiar interior and exterior orbits of the Guggenheim. And given that the book was in preparation a year before September 11, there are monumental pictures of the World Trade Center, captured in more lights and at more angles than many people will conceivably want or need. Yet even the most jaded photo connoisseur will find Berenholtz' s pictures of Grand Central Station spectacular, and the Times Square and full skyline panoramas breathtaking. The shots of more anonymous facade details, lesser known parks, subway stations, and bridges other than the Brooklyn feel fresh. The light and the weather play starring roles here, as pains seem to have been taken to eliminate people and cars. Berenholtz used no filters, but coaxes deep and often surprising colors out of the skies and facades. If the lush printing can sometimes feel a little late-' 90s glitzy, the whole strikes an excellent balance between garish and grounded, much like New York itself. (Oct. 1) Forecast: This book' s grand scale comes at a price, but it is anything but an instant book, reflecting serious preparation and care, and it should trounce the very-high-end competition in the fall' s sure-to-be-hot New York gift book season. Rizzoli is limiting the run to 5,000 copies and says it won' t go back to press. If the book gets major attention, which it should, expect the issue of antipopulism to be raised, not so much in terms of price, but of exclusivity. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
