New York Vertigo
By Michel Setboun
This is a New York that no one has yet dared to explore. Photographer Michel Setboun spent ten years scaling the city's walls and scouring its rooftops to capture these images, and the results are not only dazzling, but occasionally dizzying. With their acute angles and dramatic views, these photographs capture the incredible vitality and spectacularvariety of life in the world s greatest city. From the intricate dance of the taxis belowto the neon buzzdrifting upfrom Times Square; the stern grandeur of the Chrysler Building eagles to the color-saturated graffiti in Long Island City; the reflected stutter of midtown skyscrapers to the downtown canyons that open to the sea, readers will be amazed atthe nerve (and balance!) required totake these beautifully composed pictures. Vertigo, indeed, but of the most soul-stirring kind.
