Two items we have to tell you about! Two are from the world of books, two are from the world of New York. (That’s right, they’re the same two, because books and New York are a cranky married couple that can’t get enough of each other.)
- NY Through the Lens (above left) is becoming an extremely attractive book, and that book is available for pre-sale right now. If you like your New York to be at once intimately familiar and constantly smitten with its own newness, then this book is destined for your coffee table.
- Never Can Say Goodbye (above right) isn’t a Tumblr book, per se, but it’s a fine collection of New York essays (a genre unto itself) and it’s thick with Tumblr luminaries like Alex Chee, Jenna Wortham, Rachel Syme, Jason Diamond, Isaac Fitzgerald. (We stole that list from the perfect Maris Kreizman, whose own essay touches on how her Tumblr, which is both “silly” and “singularly mine,” helped her find her way into the whole New Yorky, internetty, Tumblry community.)
Whew. Two mouthfuls up there, but it seemed important that we let you know about this beautiful stuff that, hey, you’re pretty much already a part of.

Thank you Tumblr! ♥
All about my New York coffee table book via Tumblr’s official Books Tumblr (a great one to follow!). Thanks Tumblr! ♥ you.
NY Through The Lens - The Book!
I am super excited to announce this news!
My New York City photography book is currently available for pre-sale.
Will the book be releasing in physical stores as well?
Yes! It will be at major retailers like Barnes and Noble here in the United States as well as many other retailers in the US and UK.
Here is a new page with an ongoing listing of physical retail and online locations to purchase the book:
New York City - Photography Book and New Logo!
My New York City Photography book just released in Europe this past week and people have been sending me tweets to my Twitter and photos on other social networks of the book and it’s so surreal.
This is a nice photo of the book taken by Frank Buttenbender in Germany today:
Every time I see a photo of the book, it takes me a second or two to realize that it’s really my book! I see the cover, I think to myself: “That looks like one of my photographs” and then it hits me. It’s quite amusing actually!
I wanted to take some time to thank everyone. It’s been quite a crazy journey so far and in some ways it is just the beginning. It’s nice to meet so many truly great people along the way who are inspiring in their own way.
Sometimes text doesn’t convey sincerity online but I am sincere when I say that I am super grateful for everyone’s encouragement, inspiring words and messages.
And since I realize that this will all probably seem like gobbledy-gook to people who have no idea of what I am referring to - here is a link to my epic (long) blog post about my book including all sorts of info and answers to commonly asked questions with an updated link to retail locations in the US and UK:
In other exciting news, after 5 years of posting to NY Through The Lens, I finally have an official logo! Here it is:
Almost a year ago, I went to 99 Designs to try to find a designer who could create a logo for my travel photography blog Traveling Lens. I didn’t really know what to expect from that site but a really talented designer ended up creating a logo that I love.
Since then, I have hired her to complete various private projects and she has never once disappointed. I often have (what I think are) super vague ideas in my head and she takes those ideas and creates magic. This is her profile on 99 Designs: Evey81. I highly recommend her!
In other news, I am heading to San Francisco for the rest of the week with a group of highly talented bloggers and photographers. We will be photographing the city (my first time visiting!), meeting the Pinterest team at their headquarters, meeting up with the AirBNB team at their headquarters, as well as hanging out with some of the lovely people at Southwest Airlines. Fun, fun!
Thank you all again for being so awesome and I just may post some San Francisco photography while I am exploring. :)
* All photos in this post can be found in the book, of course.
New York City - Rain - Chinatown
the bleary-eyed clouds
that fill the sky above,
the cracks of the city’s
streets and sidewalks
stretch across its body
like wrinkles on well-worn skin
while street signs and buildings
melt into each other
into a river of colors.
And in the twilight
of the afternoon’s memories,
the sky’s tears fall.
