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 color 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 color and the clamor 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
