♥ book review: the grey ghost: new york city photographs.

i was recently sent a copy of the grey ghost, featuring the haunting black and white
photography of dan winters.  with most of the shots taken between the years 1987 and 1990 
when winters moved to new york at age 25, this book is a celebration and exploration
of the city that never sleeps.

the mesmerizing cover is textured and brilliant in an art-deco style.
the inside pages, most of which include a photo on one side and a white page 
on the other, allow you to view the works without distraction. 

the photos capture both the every day hustle and bustle of the city
and the glimmer of beauty in stolen moments that only someone
with a trained eye and a quick reflex could catch.

this book is a wonderful reminder of how much beauty you may find
right outside your doorstep.
