From the article by Katherine McGrath for Architectural Digest:
What is New York City without the New Yorkers? It’s difficult to imagine one of the most densely populated cities in North America without its people, but there’s more to the Big Apple than its residents. After all, New York is home to some of the most iconic works of architecture in the world. But between the crowds of locals and tourists, the parade of traffic, and the general chaos that gives the city its charm, it can be difficult to properly take in the spectacular landmarks without distraction—which is why artist Marc Yankus trains his lens on the city’s structures in his ongoing photo series “New York Unseen.”
The images, which are on view at ClampArt in West Chelsea through mid-November, depict an eerie yet calming view of the city. They’re only subtly digitally altered, with surgical manipulations to create an empty landscape, and without the people, cars, pets, and litter, the buildings look pristine and uncompromised.
