"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. To my untrained eye it is in excellent, if not perfect, condition. If it matters, the original box is not as pristine, but it does serve its purpose of protecting the book. Deluxe Limited Edition : "New York, New York" was strictly limited to 5,000 copies worldwide. This book is number 213 of 5000.
This elegant edition also includes a numbered, printed image signed by the artist and created exclusively for this book. Publisher : Rizzoli; Limited edition (September 2002) ISBN : 0847824977 Size : 12" x 18" Pages : 240. This enormous, 12" x 18" book with 240 carefully composed shots and 12 gatefolds should be the New York photo book of the season. 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.
A voluptuous array of city imagery. The pictures are panoramic, the colors uncommonly rich and beautiful.
