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.”
