383 megapixels! A very high definition cityscape VAST photo of the Jersey City skyscrapers including URL Harborside 1 at sunset in New Jersey ; created by Dan Piech

Jersey Rising

Jersey City, New Jersey
Jersey City is one of the most underappreciated cities in the United Sates, existing in the literal shadow of lower Manhattan. Most eyes usually overlook its rising waterfront skyline, favoring the other side of the Hudson River, unaware of the quickly advancing prospects of New Jersey's second most populous city. However, that is beginning to change as Jersey City has been undergoing a dramatic revitalization in recent years, headlined by the construction of many impressive towers.

I watched this flurry of construction from Manhattan for quite some time and wanted to capture the spirit of New York's neighbor-city on its way to making a name for itself. In late 2015, construction topped out at 713 feet on "URL Harborside 1," the centered building in this photo, making it New Jersey's tallest residential tower. Perfectly placed within the Jersey City skyline, it made the ideal subject.

After waiting a few months for the lighting conditions to be optimal, a beautiful early-Spring day in 2016 presented the perfect opportunity. I worked to capture this VAST photo, one of the highest resolution photos of Jersey City ever taken, amid the sights, sounds, and smells of spring, a time that represents rebirth, growth, and opportunity. I can think of no better time of year to represent Jersey City.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
