Some people may mistakenly overlook this book because of the novelty of its central idea——upending a panoramic camera to shoot New York City vertically. But veteran photographer Horst Hamann's pictures have nothing gimmicky about them; in fact, they seem destined for New York City photo immortality. The pictures are beautifully controlled——in vision, in camera technique, and in printing. On a shelf of New York books, this one might take its place next to Paul Goldberger's classic, The City Observed, as a fresh example of how New York's stone, steel, and glass architectural icons are reinvented with each new visionary.
