In this photographic art book, Horst and Daniel Zielske yet again document a mega-metropolis with an extraordinary and atmospheric cycle of images: New York - street scenes, backyards, the rusty stilts of the elevated railway in Harlem, a deserted side-street devoid of human life.

The city that never sleeps allows itself to pause for a few moments; they are moments of symbolic equilibrium, which the photo artists have captured.

The photographers have renounced all frippery; they simply observe very closely, search for a long time, until they have the optimal angle and perspective. The results are surprisingly intimate - they are snapshots, but at the same time they are monuments for eternity. These are images of New York City with an unknown tranquility and an almost palpable stillness.

In these moving photographs, even well-known masterpieces of modern architecture such as the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum reveal an entirely new magic.

Text in English and German.
