Om boken
"Richard has a unique eye for the still astonishing diversity of New Yorkers, natives or transplants. A transplant himself, there's no denying the power of Richard's personal vision of the city he has made his home. His evident talent and the works' singularity speak for themselves." - Julia Gruen, Executive Director, Keith Haring Foundation, New York, NY Many cities can boast beautifully designed buildings, but New York's architecture is different. This photo book of New York tells the city's story of impressive buildings and streets filled with inspiring people. New York is a city that worships those who work hard, yet shows no mercy to those who slip through the cracks. And yet, its tenacious residents, who hail from all corners of the globe, are proud to call it home. Unified by its diversity, the city inspires belief in the idea that individual happiness is self-made, as its streets and buildings seem to suggest that everyone can strive to be the best version of themselves. In a world that struggles to deal with ever-changing demographics, the Big Apple sets a shining example.
