Kurzbeschreibung

1. September 2010
The New York skyline is arguably one of the most distinctive on Earth. At night, however, the city's numerous landmarks are transformed from the familiar into the new. Following the success of Merrell's London at Night, award-winning aerial photographer Jason Hawkes offers a dramatic, night-time perspective on one of the world's most iconic locations. From the vantage point of a helicopter, Hawkes captures the magical, almost abstract quality of such familiar sights as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the Empire State Building as seen after dark, as well as revealing some of New York's less well-known vistas. Featuring an informative introduction and extended captions by the New York Times journalist Christopher Gray, New York at Night is a unique and often breathtaking record of the city that truly never sleeps.

3.0 von 5 Sternen New York dark 28. Januar 2011
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The world's premier city looks pretty cool in daylight so its look after dark should be dazzling. Photographer Jason Hawkes has done his best to capture the dazzle in these 130 images. It should have worked but I didn't think the idea quite comes off, partially because of the concept and also because of the book's presentation.

The bright lights of the city really only look dramatic where the skyscrapers are: midtown and the Wall Street area. The rest of Manhattan, after dark and from the air, sort of looks like any other huge metropolis stretching to the horizon. There are many photos in the book with not much to look at and taken from above doesn't help. Apart from the skyscraper area distance reduces what lights there are to small dots and the shapes of buildings disappear. The same shots during daylight, of course, look much more fascinating. Some of the aerial shots of skyscrapers do look quite stunning but the rest could just have as easily been taken from the top of buildings in midtown. This is what two other photographers have done with their photo books: New York vertigo (ISBN 9780810995116) and Manhattan lightscape (ISBN 1558591214). Both include some night shots among the panoramas of the city and both books are a landscape shape rather than Hawkes square format.

I thought the book's presentation rather reduced it to a tourist offering rather than a creative photo book. Everything in the book is black, reasonable enough, it goes with the theme but unfortunately there a many spreads with two photos and a thin black strip which separates them, only it doesn't. Because darkness makes building shapes disappear two photos frequently look like they merge together and destroying the feel of both and all the photos bleed off the edge of the page.

I thought the book's presentation rather reduced it to a tourist offering rather than a creative photo book. Everything in the book is black, reasonable enough, it goes with the theme but unfortunately there a many spreads with two photos and a thin black strip which separates them, only it doesn't. Because darkness makes building shapes disappear two photos frequently look like they merge together and destroying the feel of both and all the photos bleed off the edge of the page. Another problem are the long captions. They are white text on black panels and annoyingly, quite often, these are placed on the photo.

If these photos had been presented in a more formal photo book style with more thought given to the text, still keeping the all black page design, I think it would made a more interesting book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous book, 4. März 2011
Von Leaca - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Having travelled to New York last year, I still love reading about & looking at pictures of this amazing city! This book has both fabulous pics & interesting historic mentions, & as most are aerial & nightshots, it's got that point of difference to other picture books. I read it over time & time again.
