Piece description from the artist
Shot in NYC; this view, from 52 stories up, looking north shows the Empire State Building, the NYC Municipal Building and NY by Gehry. The light that day was very unusual and created amazing shadows and highlights on the skyline. It simply couldn't be cropped to fit the proportions used on Turning Art, but would look great matted, or go for an original!
Marshall Stief is a New York City-based photographer and cinematographer. His passion for documentary photography has sent him all over the United States and around the globe.
While traveling, Marshall always sets aside time to photograph the world around him. His style ranges from shooting vistas and landscapes to more abstract imagery. His favorite subject, however, is his own back yard; New York City. New York is known as one of the most photographed places on Earth, but Marshall feels that it is still rich with unseen images. His unique perspective on the city always produces interesting and different views.
From Bangkok to Charleston, Harlem to New Zealand, these photographs capture the essence of the places they were taken.
