elcome to New York City’s beating heart: Manhattan. One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years. The city impresses and inspires like no other in America. There is no place in the world quite like New York City.

So much can be said about it – it is big, it is loud, it is beautiful, and most of all, it is iconic. It is the meeting place of the peoples. When I am in New York, I just want to walk down the street and feel this thing, like I’m in a movie. Here is a selection of photographs including scenic views from the Empire State Building.

‘Sometimes, from beyond the skyscrapers, the cry of a tugboat finds you in your insomnia, and you remember that this desert of iron and cement is an island’. – Albert Camus

New York

The city is the perfect setting for urban photography – the world’s most evocative cityscape, against which candid, memorable moments play themselves out every day.
