Seattle-based photographer Navid Baraty rames New York City in sections of just a few blocks. Although the traffic-packed streets and countless windows on high-rises can be seen from the ground, Baraty’s aerial shots in his ongoing Hidden City II series provide a distinct look at the area’s density and compactedness.
‘Over the years I’ve photographed various reflections of NYC seen in the windows of skyscrapers. I couldn’t believe my eyes the first time I saw how much of a cityscape can be seen reflected along the edges of skyscrapers from on high. It was as if I’d discovered some sort of hidden dimension that had been there all along, waiting to be noticed.
This is a continuation of my ongoing Hidden City series of capturing these hidden realities from high above cities below.
