New York City is iconic; its raw evolutions, containing a constant swell of people and ideas, are documented so that what once was, such a short time ago, will not be forgotten. Photographer Michael Tischler, a native New Yorker, is one concerned with capturing the multitudinous angles of this most beloved city.

Using HDR technology (taking three photos of the same scene at different shutter speeds, creating a bright, a medium, and a dark photo that are then combined to form a more layered, detailed image), Tischler's New York City Limited Edition photographs are seemingly more vibrant than reality. Minute bricks on skyscrapers are distinctly outlined, window reflections are crystal clear, and debris in subway underbellies can be easily identified. Tischler reveals the City's private and communal parts in an equally flattering light.

Twenty of Tischler's cityscape photographs, limited to one 44” x 66” print on archival aluminum of each, will be sold from $10,000 to $20,000. All proceeds from the sale of his photograph One World Trade Centerwill be donated to the 9/11 Memorial Fund.

"In this splendid series of Michael Tischler’s photographs of NYC, I highly (pun intended) recommend his take from the recently opened 'new top of the world,' One World Trade Center. Michael gives us a dreamy view of Manahattan with the Brooklyn Bridge eerily floating above the East River, and a feeling of infinite space and peace. I salute Michael’s humanitarianism for donating the proceeds from this inspiring artwork to the National September 11 Memorial Fund and Museum," says Philippe Petit, famed high wire performer.
