Remember my post about Iwan Baan’s photographs of Lower Manhattan for New York magazine just after Hurricane Sandy? Go here. Well if you want a poster of that haunting image you can purchase it for $25 from The MoMA Design store with proceeds from the sale of this poster benefitting the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Or if you have the big bucks, say $100,000, his gallery in L.A. (they just signed him) Perry Rubenstein, will have the photo in an edition of 10 for $100,000 each with those proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy relief. The photo will be in included in a show called “The Way We Live.” You can read Baan’s detailed account of taking the pictures here.
The cover of this week’s New York magazine has a fantastic nighttime shot of Lower Manhattan in the dark last week. NY Mag asked one of their contributing photographers Iwan Baan if he happened to be in town last week. He was so he captured these photos that seem out of a movie or Photoshopped.
