Dan Piech's "Concrete Canvas" series captures the accidental beauty that serendipitously occurs when the concrete beneath New Yorkers' feet is inadvertently graced by spilled paint, fallen debris, expanding cracks, chemical stains, and other fascinating visual elements. An avid runner, Dan has spent over a year traversing every single Manhattan street south of 100th in search of these overlooked "artworks" that have become part of the fabric of the city.
As the founder of the VAST artist collective, Dan uses advanced imaging techniques and equipment to create unprecedented gigapixel-quality photographs that capture every intricate detail of these ephemeral designs. The exceptionally high resolution photographs are then printed in large formats, resulting in impeccably precise physical replicas of the walkways.
Each Concrete Canvas piece embodies the unique soul of New York and challenges us to find beauty in the overlooked, the accidental, the minuscule, and the transient.
This 530-megapixel VAST photo is one of the highest definition photographs ever created. It has a resolution equivalent to 256 HDTVs.
