The mythic city : photographs of New York by Samuel H. Gottscho, 1925-1940 by Donald Albrecht( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"New York is arguably the first round-the-clock city - the ultimate city where day blurs into night. During the late 1920s and 1930s, as photography was establishing a firm monopoly on the visual documentation of the built landscape, architectural photographer Samuel H. Gottscho created a now-classic portrait of New York as the quintessential modern metropolis. Silhouetting Manhattan's new skyscrapers, celebrated buildings - such as the American Radiator Building and Rockefeller Center - and signature skyline with a vision uniquely his own, Gottscho carefully embraced the line between the documentary and the artistic in photography and shaped a New York through his lens that was distinctly Gottscho, yet unquestionably New York. The Mythic City: Photographs of New York by Samuel H. Gottscho, 1925-1940 presents the first collection of Gottscho's vision of New York as a dreamlike city of towers and as a complex and layered representation of modernity. With over 170 images from the Museum of the City of New York's Gottscho-Schleisner Collection, The Mythic City provides a window into the New York of Gottscho's era - a pivotal moment in the development of the city's ever-evolving built environment - one that glowed with a glamorous sheen, rendered by Gottscho's hand as proud, heroic, and defiantly optimistic."--Jacket
