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.
From film. Before Coney was bought up. You’ll see quite a bit of buildings up for sale in this photograph (taken from the BMT subway).
Camera resting on ledge on 42nd street. Reflection on 42nd street looking east.
Skating Rink in color. Most of the colors were added by Beckerman’s digital imagination.
Painted infrared photograph of New York Skyline. This image began as b&w Kodak HIE film. The negative was scanned at a high resolution, and coloring was added by the artist, bit by bit.

Photographed with a 4 x 5 inch large format view camera. Bethesda Arcade. I used the 4 x 5 camera for a few years. But I did get some good shots with it. This was taken before the renovation; chicken wire was in place to prevent bits of ceiling from falling on tourists. My two best selling prints were taken in Central Park with this large camera, back in 1993.
Photographed from fifth avenue through steam from steam pipes that are used in NYC for heating. From 35mm film negative. Tinted added in digital world. Circa 1990s. Steam with the Empire State Building – what else do you want in a NYC photograph?
