Skyscrapers and Soul
The most evocative shots of the city that never sleeps

Trace the epic story of New York through hundreds of atmospheric photographs, from the mid-19th century to the present day. This remarkable collection, now available in a popular edition, pays tribute to the extraordinary architecture, civic, social, and photographic heritage of the city that never sleeps.

From the building of the Brooklyn Bridge to the immigrants arriving at Ellis Island; from the slums of the Lower East Side to the magnificent Art Deco skyscrapers, the city is laid out block by block, in all its chaos, complexity, energy, diversity, and style. Featured photographers include such feted talents as Alfred Stieglitz, Berenice Abbott, Weegee, Margaret Bourke-White, William Claxton, Ralph Gibson, and Steve Schapiro. The pictures are accompanied throughout by over a hundred evocative quotations and references from New York-based novels, movies, shows, and songs.

Text in English, French, and German
