Full Description
New York is an engaging collection of photographs taken of one of America and the world’s most fascinating cities as seen through the eyes of photographer, art director and award-winning designer Lloyd Ziff. Shot over the last 4 decades in classic black and white and contemporary colour photography, Ziff’s New York captures the changing landscape of the city’s architecture, streets and people as only a seasoned New Yorker can. “Lloyd and I go back over forty years, and his photographs, like Lloyd, are kind of shy. They seem to focus ultimately on the infinite, the horizon line. I own at least two of Lloyd’s pictures, and I keep them with me, usually by a window because the photographs themselves are picture windows; they view a life of romance, escape and optimism. They give me a way out. I love Lloyd for most of the same reasons.” – Annie Leibovitz

“To be frank, who would have known Lloyd would be a master in the light touch. Real open and breezy, lots of room for people to get lost. When I look at them, I feel all warm. They make me want to go home.” – Diane Keaton

“These pictures are about seeing clearly and about the relief and comfort that photographs can summon up, after the colour and the clamour of commerce is left behind.” – Marvin Heiferman, photography curator and author

“Ziff ranges freely. Unconfined by time or subject, he randomly enriches our idea of what the city represents.” – Sir Harold Evans
