HIGH LINE NUDES | Hardcover
From the foreword:
“One of the High Line’s powers is its ability to evoke time, to remind us of the changes we’ve experienced during our own lives, to bring forth echoes of the past, and to make us guess what life might be like years from now. I love the photos on these pages, because they have that power, too.”
—Joshua David, Co-Founder of the Friends of the High Line
Ten Avenues Press, in association with Friends of the High Line, announce the publication of High Line Nudes. In 2006, photographer Kevin McDermott took three of his friends up on the abandoned railroad tracks that would become New York City’s High Line park to shoot a series of nudes. As McDermott states in his introduction, “at the time I took these photos, what I sought from its beauty was its sense of isolation, being alone, surrounded by nature in the middle of this metropolis.” A decade later, this location is now one of the most visited tourist destinations in NYC and one of the largest real estate developments in the world. High Line Nudes captures a seemingly impossible, but beautiful moment in the history of the West Side Rail Yards, Chelsea and an ever changing New York City.
The cloth hardcover book is beautifully printed in color and rich black and white duotone images.
The book ships within the US via Media Mail with tracking through the USPS. Internationally, via First Class International through the USPS.
