Looking Down in NYC

There’s something romantic about the rooftops of New York City and I keep thinking about it since the Disney Paperman short film. A series of photographs by Navid Baraty aims to escape the horns, sirens and clamour, and show a different way to look at the city:

Anyone who’s walked around a city looking up at the grandeur of the towering buildings knows how small you can feel amid such giants. I wanted to instead look down from those dizzying heights and capture a surreal and altered perspective on the familiar chaotic but rhythmic life below. While there’s undeniable beauty in abstracting architecture into angles and reflections, I was attracted even more by the unique character of each city that could still be perceived from far above.
