NYC Intersections From High Above


Our friend, New York-based photographer Navid Baraty, just sent word about an exciting series he’s been working on. If you don’t mind photography that gets you a little queasy, you’ll enjoy this. Taken from high above, Baraty gives us incredible views of New York City – its historic buildings, its legion of taxis and and its very busy people.

Just how did Baraty take these shots? By “leaning over the edge of buildings,” he says, and “by extending my arms out if necessary.”

Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
