Colour is where it's all happening in photography today, and New York City is colour photography's greatest subject. "New York in Colour" presents the best colour photography of New York over the last century and celebrates one of the world's most visually vibrant cities. From such iconic landmarks as Times Square, Central Park, and Coney Island to neighbourhoods and locales unknown even to many New Yorkers, colour photography provides a new perspective on the city. More than anything else, though, it is New York's famous energy, anarchy, and diversity as observed on the city's streets and in its public spaces that have inspired many of the photographers in this collection. "New York in Colour" shows the city as an ever-changing visual collage, 'a beautiful catastrophe,' as the Swiss architect Le Corbusier famously described it. Organized in thematic sections that capture the vibrancy and poetry of the changing streetscape - such as the skyline, the teeming streets, the constant motion, the nerve centres of activity, the famous landmarks, the water's edge - "New York in Colour" is destined to be a classic photographic survey of the world's most exciting city.
