Flatiron building circa 1993.

New York City is filled with landmarks. They’ve mostly been photographed for as long as photography existed. So, the tricky thing (for me anyway) was to try and find some original take on the various buildings and landmarks that call people to NYC everyday.
How do you get the front of the Flatiron Building on 23rd street and the Empire State Building on 34th street in the same shot… Wait for a sculpture with a mirror. Here’s another Flatiron shot you might enjoy.
Washington Square Arch. 2010. Infrared. New York tourist attraction in Washington Square Park in the West Village.
The Brooklyn Bridge photographed with Infrared Black and White film, 2007. This film really brought out the texture of the sky.
Photographed with Kodak Infrared film, this is reflection of Chrysler Building in store window on 42nd street.
An unusual location to photograph lower Manhattan. Difficult as well as the tunnel is pretty dark. Best on a gray day. As the title says, under the Manhattan Bridge on the Manhattan side, looking towards downtown Manhattan. Very Gotham feel; like something from the first Batman movie.
Trefoil Bridge during sleet storm in Central Park – one of my favorites. Photographed in 1993 with a large format film camera. Very suitable for large prints.
Photographed with a converted infrared digital camera in 2009; then digital painting.
Walk up into the Bronx across the Willis Avenue Bridge and you’ll find tons of these hole in the wall tire fixing places. This shot was taken circa 1990, 35mm film. A lot of detail that will be fun to look at.
Two film negatives scanned together. One of the fountain in front of the plaza hotel and the other of bethesda fountain with central park lake in the background. Both images are from 1993 (more or less). You are guaranteed to see more in this image if you look at it carefully every few days.
