Join B&H and Sony on July 19, 2021 for an online talk with renowned photographer Mark Seliger.

When COVID-19 was at its peak, the normally bustling streets of New York City came to a haunting halt. Seliger documented the unusual time, walking the streets of the Big Apple with his camera and capturing their emptiness from all angles. The photos he captured during this height of the pandemic together create this new collection of black and white photos available in the book.

The collection of images feature everything from closed storefronts and dimmed cityscapes to traffic-free streets and even a completely empty area surrounding Yankee Stadium. All of them in stark contrast to how we are used to seeing the so-called city that never sleeps.
