More than 60 million people visit New York City each year. Every single traveler experiences the city in a unique way. There is no such thing as one New York. Streets of New York is a New York photo book that celebrates the Big Apple’s tremendous diversity by bringing together over 40 contemporary photographers and their multiple perspectives on this unique metropolis. Often drawing on a strong social media presence, each photographer offers her or his personal take on New York’s unparalleled vibrancy, impact, and allure, creating both a rich collection of city photography and street style, and a visual catalogue of New York travel inspirations. Photographs of world-renowned New York landmarks and attractions like the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and World Trade Center Transportation Hub are interspersed with pictures of New York’s hidden treasures, tucked-away Manhattan charms, and lesser known, but equally interesting New York City districts—all captured with a present-day attention to detail and a wide-eyed love for the City that Never Sleeps.

Fifty percent of the world’s flower species are threatened with extinction. Each year, numerous flowers disappear from the face of the Earth without ever being documented. Indeed, many of these natural beauties remain as yet unknown to humankind. Photographer Richard Fischer can be regarded as an ambassador for flowers. For many years, he has staged graceful and endangered floral specimens in his photo studio, capturing the uniqueness and transience of each flower. In collaboration with the world’s leading botanical gardens, his strikingly original images provide the flowers with an aesthetic framework in which their power of expression and majesty remain intact. Fischer’s precise, yet delicate floral compositions record the unique color, form, and texture of each flower, while signaling to the extraordinary beauty, diversity, and fragility of the natural world. Fischer’s inimitable flower photographs have bestowed him with exhibitions around the world: at the United Nations in New York, the Palais des Nations in Geneva, and the renowned China Academy of Art in Hangzhou. Richard Fischer prints are much sought after collector’s items in the art photography market and calendars of his flower images appear annually. Now, for the first time, Richard Fischer brings together his best pictures spanning 15 years in one flower photo- graphy book, showcasing his artwork and little-known floral exotica. Throughout the volume, the photographs are accompanied by informative and captivating texts, leading the reader through an unknown and dwindling world of flowers.

Andy Warhol (Pittsburgh, 1928) is without a doubt one of the most relevant and best-known artists of the 20th century. This volume, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name in Barcelona, Madrid and Málaga, highlights how Andy Warhol captured the cult of merchandise from industrial inventions of the 19th century. Always attentive to technical and industrial breakthroughs, Warhol used all types of techniques and machinery, from silk-screen printing to video recorders, with production patterns that he himself defined as “pertaining to an assembly line.” This apparently impersonal mechanical art, cynically rejects any intentional spiritual burden. This catalogue brings together a selection of over 250 works by Andy Warhol, which portray the technical and conceptual evolution of underground art in New York, emerging from the start of the second half of the 20th century. It also includes a series of essays written on his work and a selection of portraits of the artist, by photographers Alberto Schommer, Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe.
