Description : “Yann Arthus-Bertrand rarely photographs cities, but to this rule, he makes two exceptions: Venice and New York. Let’s talk only about New York. He loves the madness, the excesses and the luminous transparency. The photographer was able to play with light and angles to capture spectacular, unusual and vertiginous images: architectural details perched on the tops of skyscrapers, reflections dancing along the glass facades …
But since September 11, 2001, the city has lost some of its identity. The disappearance of its two tallest buildings has metamorphosed the face of the megalopolis. This new edition includes about twenty new images made at the beginning of 2002, and shows a city that only aspires to rebound and that continues to transform, to amaze us and make us dream.”

Authors biography
“Yann Arthus-Bertrand, born in 1946, has always been passionate about nature and the outdoors. Leaving Kenya in 1978 to photograph lions, he discovered the world from the sky aboard a balloon.
A specialist in aerial photography, he has published some 60 works, including La Terre vue du ciel, published by Editions de La Martinière and translated into 14 languages. The result of a work undertaken in 1990, this aerial portrait of the Earth invites us to reflect on the evolution of the planet and the future of its inhabitants.
For more information about the photographer:
A historian of New York architecture and renowned cartographer, John Tauranac is the author of all the texts that accompany the photographs of the book. If he knows the city better than anyone, he was still the first to recognize that the eye of Yann Arthus-Bertrand had revealed to him novel prodigies.”
