Continuing our series of darkness-themed posts to promote our new black edition summer slippers, we showcase the monochromatic photography of Dennis Ramos, displaying the architectural beauty of the New York skyline.

Seen in snippets through gaps in between buildings, iconic buildings are portrayed in black and white. The lack of colour and emphasis on light and shade creates a cinematic aesthetic that resonates with the setting of New York, scene of so many films.

 

 

Although these images show familiar landmarks, of which even those who have never visited the city may recognise, the lack of colour, movement and day-to-day life shows a different side of New York City. It’s possible that the city that never sleeps does have a quiet, tranquil and restful side.

The minimal aesthetic of these images shies away from the bright lights, harsh colours and chaos of the cities streets, showing that, several stories up, New York offers a respite from frantic city life.

Up above the streets, one is able to see the city from a new perspective, peering as Ramos has through the spaces in between the buildings to see their own unique view. The sunlight shines down from above, illuminating and casting shadows simultaneously, adding new dimensions to the scene.

When visiting a new city, make time to climb staircases and to gaze out of windows, taking in the unexpected and imperfect views, rather than relying on the perspective from the ground or from the highest elevation point. These mid-way views offer a completely different picture of your location.
