How to capture the City That Never Sleeps in chilling moments of serenity? Award winning photographer Jean-Michel Berts does just that in this epic visual showpiece of to the world greatest city. At dawn, the streets of New York resonate with a life of its own: muted, subdued, and mysterious. That's precisely the moment in which Berts has elected to capture it. The City's greatest landmarks and views are captured here like they never have been before, framed by Berts's camera obscura. Buildings, bridges, completely deserted streets, and even its trees and empty flights of stairs take on a poetic, ethereal, almost dream-like 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 of the print is given ample breathing space in a gift-volume whose opulent trim size befits the spectacular quality of the shots.
