In Serge Ramelli’s photos, people are a secondary subject. What matters is the setting, the mood, the light, the environment. Typical elements and landmarks are shown as no one has quite seen before, except, perhaps, in a dream, or in a movie.

In his unique and masterful way, Ramelli imbues a cinematic quality in the everyday.

The viewer is spellbound by the suspense and suggestion of his images: what will happen next? Anyone familiar with Ramelli’s black-and-white photographs of New York will marvel at the different sides of the city he captures in color—the luminosity of the yellow cabs and traffic lights and the interplay of natural and artificial light.

Times Square, Broadway, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty—everyone has a different, mostly romantic, association with the many icons of this storied city, perhaps inspired by a book, a movie, a song, or a visit.

That poetic trace and many more are sure to be found in this photo tribute, which reveals both the treasured NYC hotspots and lesser-known corners of the metropolis.

A beautiful New York photography book unfolding in Ramelli’s characteristic cinematic style—now, at last, in color.
