Photo Series Shows the Manhattan Waterfront Like You Have Never Seen it Before

A new photo series from LA and NYC photographer Zev Schmitz offers a unique glimpse at the Manhattan shoreline and waterfront buildings like you have never seen before, from within the river.

The series is titled Island of Manhattan and its concept is explained by Schmitz:

It aims to recontextualize New York City by moving away from the rich language of the street photography we know so well and framing Manhattan as the geographic island that it has always been. From the water surrounding the island, new perspectives of the urban jungle appear. The architecture is juxtaposed with unfamiliar buildings and spaces rarely seen reveal themselves above splashing waves.
