New York Vertigo by Michel Setboun
Great photography meets the perfect package. Abrams is proud to announce the Portfolio Collection, an exciting format where superb photographs see the world through new eyes. This is a New York that no-one has ever dared to explore and perhaps the only collection of photographs to finally capture the incredible vitality and spectacular variety of life in the world's greatest city. Michel Setboun spent 10 years scaling the city's walls and scouring its rooftops to get the perfect shot, and the results are not only dazzling, but occasionally quite dizzying.From the intricate dance of the taxis below to the neon buzz drifting up from Times Square; the stern grandeur of the Chrystler Building's eagles to the colour-saturated graffiti in Long Island City; the reflected stutter of midtown skyscrapers to the downtown canyons that open to the sea, you'll find yourself constantly amazed how Setboun snapped these beautifully composed pictures without losing his nerve - or his balance. Vertigo, indeed - but of the most soul-stirring kind.
