From the Bookshelf
As promised here's one of the books my friend Lisa gifted me with for my birthday. As many of us know, Lisa is a closet New Yorker, so it seemed extra appropriate. The author began taking pictures four years ago, starting out with buildings and eventually finding his metier with portraits. His faceBook, website and Tumblr have attracted millions of visitors and that all led to this, his first book. It is delightful, poignant, funny and will be bring a tear to your eye. From high style to street style, he covers the countless neighbourhoods of the Big Apple. Some photos are captioned with a story and others with just the location. The faces are amazing - young, old, male, female, all colours - all Humans of New York.
