From the Inside Flap
From Central Park to Katz s delicatessen, the Flatiron Building to Battery Park, this serene and beautiful paean to New York paints a unique picture of the world s most vibrant city. Imagine a New York devoid of people, its empty streets, bridges and waterways as silent and magnificent as an Ansel Adams landscape. This is the New York that Christopher Thomas reveals in duotone photographs that are at once haunting and nostalgic. Employing a large-format Polaroid camera, Thomas shot many of these images in the early hours of the day or with long exposures.
