Few skylines in the world are as impressive as New York's. But how do you capture the entirety of it, from downtown all the way to uptown, in a single photo that can be easily displayed?

I went over to the Hudson River waterfront in Hoboken, New Jersey on a gorgeous spring evening and as the setting sun illuminated the buildings, the sky turned a beautiful palette of pastel colors, replete with wispy clouds. Taking dozens of photos, I captured the entire Manhattan skyline from 100th street down to Battery Park. The resulting image from stitching them all together is extremely wide and therefore not conducive to displaying on normal-sized walls, so I wrapped the skyline up into a circle to succinctly convey, in a more easily-consumed form, the grandeur, variety, and energy of the city.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
