James Maher Photographs A New NYC
Posted on April 13 2017
Just a few decades ago, New York was known as a soulful city: gritty but free; dirty but alive. People came here for acceptance and freedom to be as they wanted, and a culture of creativity blossomed. However, in the post-9/11 world, mandated change accelerated. Suburbia and wealth began to move back to the city with an insatiable appetite.
Photographer James Maher just released a new series entitled Luxury For Lease, which examines a post-9/11 New York where an influx of wealth and technology has turned a city once gritty and vibrant into one more solemn and materialistic. What do these images say to you? Do you agree with Maher's hypothesis? Let us know your thoughts.
