Oversized. This book coincides with a related exhibition at Museum of the City of New York, but does not specifically document the show. Publisher's description: With painstaking care and the use of multiple exposures, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao crafts each of his images with technological precision. Shooting primarily with a large-format film camera, then scanning and digitally editing the negatives, Liao creates enormous, detail-driven panoramas of the social and urban landscape of New York. This oversized monograph includes photographs taken over the last ten years. From rehabilitated Coney Island to the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, from the demise of Shea Stadium in Queens to the newly rebuilt One World Trade Center, Liao has created a lasting document of a significant period of transformation in New York's skyline and social fabric. His unique perspective on New York is both personal and hyperreal, managing to capture both the lasting charm of the city's well-known landmarks as well as the moment when New York entered the twenty-first century.Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao (born 1977) first received recognition with his series Habitat 7 (see Worldwide 128455), which was featured in the September 11, 2005, issue of The New York Times Magazine as the winner of the Capture the Times photography contest.
