New York City Vertigo

How about this awesome art photography?

Shot and developed by Alfonso Zubiaga, who hails from Madrid, Spain, it certainly captures the busyness and size of New York, in a fairly obscure but rather intriguing way.

These photos were taken in 2008, from different landmarks in the city like the Rockerfeller Center, Empire State Building and in and around Manhattan, over a period of ten days, by zooming in and out of certain parts of the city.

Composed of a single image, each photograph was then digitally reconstructed by centering and layering it in succession.

Here’s what the artist/photographer had to say about his own works: “I wanted to evoke the feeling of vertigo in the city. New York is probably the most photographed city in the world, and my intention is to portray it in a different way than what has been done so far.”

I certainly think Mr. Zubiaga has accomplished that.
