  • The Big Apple in miniature: Tilt-Shift photo techniques create a dazzling bird's-eye perspective and transform New York City life into a swirling ant-hill of miniature people
  • Accompanied by the best quotes about The City
  • Designed for tourists and New Yorkers alike

New York reduced to a miniature city? In New York Resized, photographer Jasper Léonard offers you a completely new perspective on The Big Apple.

His Tilt-Shift technique creates a dazzling bird's-eye perspective. Taking pictures from rooftops, helicopters or even drones, Léonard points his lens at the skyscrapers and yellow cabs from above, transforming the city into a swirling ant-hill of miniature people. His images are accompanied by the best quotes about New York, and his unique style guarantees that this is the most original photobook about New York that you will ever see.

Praise for Antwerp Resized: "What started as a dissertation with homemade lenses has resulted in a surprising photo book" - Gazet van Antwerpen (newspaper) - "Thanks to his special tilt-shift lenses the photographer creates the illusion you are watching miniature sculptures. Not people but puppets. Not buildings but maquettes" - De Morgen (newspaper)
