About the Book
Every New Yorker has his or her own New York, and I have mine. Its capital is Central Park which for me is the heart of the city. I have lived near or around Central Park for the last quarter century and walk in and through it on a daily basis. There is hardly ever a day when I pass through it that I don't take photographs. There is always something to surprise and delight me there. I have taken photos of Central Park in all seasons and have documented its landmarks from close observation. This book is my tribute to the city I love and call home, New York.
Originally from India, Arvind Garg moved to the United States in 1976. Since 1985 he has lived and worked as a fine art photographer in New York City. India and America remain of special significance to him, but Arvind sees himself a citizen of the world, so he likes to travel and visit and photograph as many places as his means allow him. For many years in the 1980s and 1990s he worked as a freelance photographer for the Sunday Travel Section of the New York Times which gave him the opportunity to photograph in many countries across the globe. Arvind's images are in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum, Herbert Johnson Museum, Cornell University, Madison Art Center, Wisconsin, the Historical Society of Wisconsin, as well as in several corporate and private art collections. Arvind is a contributing member of Corbis and Getty Images photo agencies.
