Street photographers will never tire of New York as a subject. It is the perfect setting for the genre, the world’s most evocative cityscape, against which candid, memorable moments play themselves out every day.
Nearly a decade ago, Vivienne Gucwa began walking the streets of the city with the only camera she could afford a sub-$100 point-and-shoot and started taking pictures. Choosing a direction and going as far as her feet would take her, she noticed lines, forms and structures that had previously gone unnoticed but which resonated, embodying a sense of home.
Having limited equipment forced her to learn about light, composition and colour, and her burgeoning talent won her blog millions of readers and wide recognition in the photographic community.
“NY Through the Lens” is a timeless photo book which showcases the stunning results of Vivienne’s ongoing quest. Filled with spectacular photographs and illuminated by Vivienne’s poetic commentary, NY Through the Lens is a quintessential New York book as well as a beautiful travel guide to the city; it will be a must-read for her many fans and for any lover of New York photography.
