Yann Arthus-Bertrand rarely photographs cities, but has made two exceptions to this rule with Venice and New York. But now we will only refer to New York. He loves his madness, his excesses and his luminous transparency. He has played admirably with light and angles to capture spectacular, unusual and dizzying images: architectural details on the skyscraper tops, reflections that dance on glass facades ... But after September 11, 2001, The city has lost part of its identity. The disappearance of its two tallest buildings has metamorphosed the appearance of the megalopolis. This new edition adds a score of new images, made at the beginning of the year 2002, and shows a city that only aspires to recover and that does not stop transforming, of surprising us and making us dream.
