Full Description

Like the first part of the Unseen series (London Unseen), New York Unseen is an authentic approach to the character of a world metropolis. It is the first illustrated book that attempts to capture the soul of the Big Apple without focusing on tourist highlights such as the Statue of Liberty and Central Park.

Instead, Luc Kordas focuses on intimate encounters with the protagonists of the East Coast metropolis: its residents. Embedded in their “natural habitat,” the mostly black-and-white images of people from the city’s streets, backyards, apartments, or trains often tell much more than the 1,000th image of the Empire State Building could.

The result is a photographic smorgasbord of looks, gestures, situations that capture the soul of New York. The city is thus seen from its edges, and at the same time from its innermost – an unprecedented view of what is probably the most photographed city in the world.

About the Author

Luc Kordas lives and creates mostly between New York and Europe. His work celebrates timeless, everyday moments. Versatile in both colour and black and white, he often chooses the latter for his documentary and street work, seeing monochrome as a more powerful tool of expression. An avid traveller who is constantly on the road, he likes to merge his favourite genres of photography, moving freely between documentary, portraiture, travel and street photography.
