Shooting in all seasons and from dawn to dusk, Steinmetz captures the thrilling complexity and romance of 21st-century New York, with its new skyline and waterfront landscape, dazzling contemporary architecture and historic buildingsâalong with parks and streets and rooftops used for every possible purpose, and the massive infrastructure that keeps it all going.

Steinmetz records some of the cityâs beloved traditionsâsuch as the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, the New York marathon, and the U.S. Openâbut what makes his photographs special is their surprising intimacy, as they capture New Yorkers going about their lives in their remarkable city.
