Photographer Evan Joseph grew up in Baltimore but has since taken New York by storm. His new book with writer Marcia Reiss, New York City at Night, is a collection of breathtaking images of the Big Apple, many taken while Joseph and his thousands of dollars worth of equipment dangled out of helicopters. Watch him talk about his harrowing experiences—which also included blocking the Brooklyn Bridge bike lane and incurring the mighty wrath of city cyclists—in his appearance on a New York news show.
In an exhibit that opens this Thursday at Manhattan's esteemed Tachi Gallery, Joseph will present large-scale versions of several photographs in the book in which, he claims, you can actually see into some peoples' living room windows.
The 1988 Pikesville High School grad has lived in the New York area for years, making his name primarily as a real estate photographer for some of the city's top properties, including the homes of Sting, Lenny Kravitz, and Rupert Murdoch. He's also had occasion to shoot some spreads for Baltimore magazine, including "Sea Change," from our October issue.
