Published to mark the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, Fulvio Roiter: High-Rise New York celebrates the city and people of New York. Consisting of over 60 colour photographs taken during 1984-1998 by the internationally-acclaimed Italian photographer Fulvio Roiter (1926-2016), they illustrate the traits of beauty, strength, resilience and hope with a sense of poignant immediacy and timeless elegance. They recall a New York that once was, its instantly recognizable skyline irreparably and arbitrarily altered by the tragic set of events that unfolded just a few years afterwards. They collectively present a New York City over an imaginary 24-hour period, key historical events such as the immigration surge of the late 19th century and the 9/11 attacks subtly woven into the volume' s poetic narrative with sensitivity and respect. As New York emerges from yet another life-changing experience caused by the Covid-19 global pandemic, Roiter' s intimate portrait of New York and its inhabitants stands as a stoic reminder of life after death, of light after darkness.
