SILENCE IS NOWHERE
NEW YORK CITY PHOTOGRAPHED BY
by CHRISTIAN PETERSON
About the Book
My sister says there is always noise in the city. She is right.
Indeed, North America's largest metropolis seems unstoppable in its bustling activity.
Yet, looking at photographs after the fact, I realize there has been emptiness and silence all along the way, though very few.
I hope you will enjoy my interpretation of New York spaces.
My attempt at photographing silence, the American way.
