New York Love Affair
In this photographic ode to a world-class city, the everyday yet oft-remembered sights of the Big Apple appear through the lens of manipulated, painted Polaroids. From the Apollo Theater, Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral to the Hotel Chelsea, Times Square, Zabar’s Deli, corner hot dog stands, and the seemingly endless stream of taxi cabs, these intimate vignettes painted with oils to reflect the glow of the city lights graphically capture the longtime resident’s delight in the city she and so many others call home. A foreword by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author and fellow New Yorker Michael Cunningham is also included.
