New York Hardback
In Serge Ramelli's photos, people are a secondary subject.
What matters is the setting, the mood, the light, the environment.
Typical elements and landmarks are shown as no one has quite seen before, except, perhaps, in a dream, or in a movie.
In his unique and masterful way, Ramelli imbues a cinematic quality in the everyday.
The viewer is spellbound by the suspense and suggestion of his images: what will happen next?
Anyone familiar with Ramelli's black-and-white photographs of New York will marvel at the different sides of the city he captures in color-the luminosity of the yellow cabs and traffic lights and the interplay of natural and artificial light.
Times Square, Broadway, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty-everyone has a different, mostly romantic, association with the many icons of this storied city, perhaps inspired by a book, a movie, a song, or a visit.
That poetic trace, and many more, are sure to be found in this photo tribute, which reveals both the treasured NYC hotspots and lesser-known corners of the metropolis.
A beautiful New York photography book unfolding in Ramelli's characteristic cinematic style-now, at last, in colour.
