NEW YORK CITY. Horst Zielske. Monaco Books, Kunth Verlag GmbH & Co. KG, Munich, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 112 pp. 31 x 41 cm. ISBN 9783899448863 Bilingual in English and German.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: In this photographic art book, Horst and Daniel Zielske yet again document a mega-metropolis with an extraordinary and atmospheric cycle of images: New York - street scenes, backyards, the rusty stilts of the elevated railway in Harlem, a deserted side-street devoid of human life. The city that never sleeps allows itself to pause for a few moments; they are moments of symbolic equilibrium, which the photo artists have captured. The photographers have renounced all frippery; they simply observe very closely, search for a long time, until they have the optimal angle and perspective. The results are surprisingly intimate - they are snapshots, but at the same time they are monuments for eternity. These are images of New York City with an unknown tranquillity and an almost palpable stillness. In these moving photographs, even well-known masterpieces of modern architecture such as the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum reveal an entirely new magic. Text in English and German.
