The New York Seen is the latest book of photographs by designer McKevin Shaughnessy. Shot predominately in lower Manhattan from the Village to Alphabet City, pushing through Chelsea to South Street Seaport, each spread juxtaposes two images from different districts that share a common theme, color, or shape capturing the diverse, eclectic blend that makes NYC such an interesting source of creative inspiration. Whether it's a colorful array of T-shirts hawking dead celebrities (Marley and Monroe) to “Street Art” that's literally embedded in the black top, Shaughnessy skillfully frames his photos--often with split-second timing. This makes for an entertaining excursion into the hidden gems that most native New Yorkers simply pass by unseen. The full-color softcover edition is also available online at www.litemotifs.com.
