Kenneth Snelson, "New York City Panoramas"

Advertising

Time Out says

Mention Snelson, and his towering "tensegrity" sculptures most likely come to mind. But he's also a photographer whose panoramic images capture something of the expansive quality of his 3-D work. This series from 30 years ago is among his best: Taken just after sunrise on a number of summer mornings between 1979 and 1980 with an 80-pound camera, they show emptied streets at various locations around Manhattan (including the Financial District, Soho and Times Square), capturing a pregentrification New York in magnificent desolation.
