Manhattan Windows

“Manhattan Windows” is a fresh exploration of New York City architecture from photographer Peter Rosenstein. With his unique viewpoint, Rosenstein’s photos highlight the layering of the city’s buildings mixed with sunlight, creating compositions of light and shape. The results appear patterned, rhythmic, and abstract–what Rosenstein calls the “fabric of the city.”

“I looked up at a group of buildings illuminated by a slash of color, and suddenly, what was always there became visible in a new way,” Rosenstein explained.

This vantage point, an 80-600 mm zoom lens, and the day’s unique weather conditions combined to create each unique photo. No Photoshop or montaging of the photos were done. Each page is an original, singular photo.

This collection is enjoyed by architecture enthusiasts, photographers, and New York City patrons alike.

Tattooed Walls
(no longer in print)

Photographer Peter Rosenstein has always noticed what others may not. As he wanders New York City, he especially appreciates the artwork left by often anonymous graffiti artists. In an effort to preserve what is often temporary, Rosenstein began photographing the artwork he encountered, celebrating the vision and technique of each artist.

The culmination of these photographs is the book Tattooed Walls. An immediate success, the book was joined by a month-long exhibit at Eyejammie Fine Arts Gallery in New York in September 2006.
