A unique collection of photographs of the real, authentic New York - off the beaten tourist track.

No other coffee-table book about New York takes such an authentic look at the people, the streets and the architecture of this cosmopolitan metropolis.

"New York Unseen", like the first part of the "Unseen series" (London Unseen), is an authentic approach to the character of a world metropolis. It is the first illustrated book that tries to capture the soul of the Big Apple without focusing on tourist highlights like the Statue of Liberty and Central Park.

Instead, Luc Kordas focuses on intimate encounters with the protagonists of the East Coast metropolis: its inhabitants. Embedded in their "natural habitat", the mostly black-and-white pictures of people from the city's streets, backyards, flats or trains often tell much more than the thousandth picture of the Empire State Building could.

The result is a photographic smorgasbord of looks, gestures, situations that capture the soul of New York. The city is thus seen from its edges, and at the same time from its innermost - an unprecedented view of what is probably the most photographed city in the world.

Luc lives and works mainly between New York and Europe. His work celebrates timeless, everyday moments. He is versatile in both colour and black and white. For his documentary and street photography, he often chooses the latter as he finds black and white a more powerful medium of expression. An avid traveller who is constantly on the move, he likes to mix his favourite genres of photography and moves freely between documentary, portrait, travel and street photography.
