Manhattan Shores : Laura Rosen's first book, the acclaimed Top of the City, introduced readers to an unseen world high above the streets of New York City. Now, in her entrancing new collection of photographs, she takes us on a journey along the hidden edges of the world's most famous island. Over a period of three years, working in all seasons and kinds of weather, she made her way around Manhattan Island with her camera. Manhattan Shores captures a world where landscape and architecture meet in strange and wonderful combinations, a world of decay and transformation, history and neglect, beauty and desecration. Accompanied by Rosen's wryly affectionate, deeply knowledgeable text, this is a book that reveals New York City's past, present, and even its future in a brilliant series of timeless images.
