The Light of New York


Assouline, a French luxury publisher, takes a lavish approach to photographing New York City, which is quite dangerous – New Yorkers don’t like it when people just shoot off photos and then put them in a book.

Which, thankfully, is not the case with The Light Of New York City. Jean-Michel Berts, the photographer, takes a bit of a Breakfast at Tiffany’s approach with this volume of work, opting to shoot in low light at dawn in NYC. The streets are deserted, buildings are waking up, and Berts takes this opportunity to shine a dream-like quality onto the city, much like Audrey Hepburn did with her film.
