SoHo Glow

SoHo, New York City

New York: the city that never sleeps. This expression, while clich├ęd, is nevertheless a palpable truth every New Yorker has experienced firsthand.

It was 4am and I was at the top of the tallest building in the low-lying region between downtown and midtown Manhattan. At a time when nearly any other city would be quietly resting, these streets were still aglow with the bright lights of taxis, windows, and street lamps.

High above the glowing streets of the famous SoHo neighborhood, I had an unobstructed view from the Empire State Building north to the Brooklyn Bridge south. In-between lay countless New York neighborhoods, each with their distinctive architecture and energy.

The scene was uniquely mesmerizing because a large snowstorm had just passed and the typically-dark rooftops were capped in a thick coat of powder. This glistening snow covering transformed the character of the scene by illuminating the rooftops with the faint blue moonlight.

With the contagious energy of the city motivating me, I spent an hour meticulously exposing the individual photos used to create this exceptionally high resolution VAST photo. The final photo has a truly stunning number of fascinating corners of the city to peer into, from the Downtown Brooklyn skyline to the ever-vibrant Chinatown, to the iconic Union Square architectural triumphs, to the industrial Con Edison plant complex, to the ornate SoHo facades, to the ultra-modern Midtown skyscrapers.

I finished the photo at 5am as the early-risers began to outnumber the late-nighters. Brave individuals could be seen going for a morning jog on the snow-covered sidewalks. The energy of the city had never dwindled.

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.
