New York City is definitely one of the most photographed cities in the world. With its impressive, iconic skyline, the city that never sleeps provides a rich canvas for many cityscape, street, and architecture photographers. In his series, “Intersection,” Brooklyn-based photographer Navid Baraty offers us a unique perspective of NYC. Here, we see the real life hustle and energy of the city from the edge of a skyscraper:
For the series, Baraty wanted to portray New York in a different way than how we normally see it. As he told Gothamist:
“After seeing countless skyline photos of NYC, I found that the real life of the city can best be captured by pointing the lens straight down from high above. You feel the energy and flow of the city—the constant stream of yellow taxis lining the avenues, the waves of pedestrians hurriedly crossing at the change of traffic signals, little figures disappearing into the subway stations, the chorus of honking horns and sirens.”
The images of “Intersection” have the unique power to evoke the feeling of heights with just a photograph, leaving many viewers slightly on edge (pun intended!), but also pleasantly drawn to them.
