boxed-set of books on Los Angeles and New York that are being published this month:
New York/Los Angeles, Photographs: 1967-2015 is a remarkable collection of compelling images of life in two of America’s most exciting cities, as seen through the eye of photographer Lloyd Ziff.
This two volume collection encompasses more than 40 years of black/white and color photography. As both cities change before Ziff’s inquiring camera lens, his unique vision emerge, amused and ironic, finding beauty and surprise in daily urban life.
Since 2000, Lloyd Ziff has made photography the sole focus of his career. He has had one man shows in New York City at Danziger Gallery and Robin Rice Gallery, and Earl McGrath Gallery in Los Angeles. His book of photographs, Near North, Photographs of Alaska and The Yukon, was published in 2010, and his photographs have been included in Patti Smith's autobiography, Just Kids , and the anthologies American Photography, Graphis Photography, and The Spirit of Family, by Al and Tipper Gore.
Ziff's photographs have been published in many of the world's most prestigious magazines including Blind Spot, The New York Times Magazine, Condé Nast Traveler, Interview, Kid's Wear (Germany), The Los Angeles Times Magazine, New York, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and Wired.
Before he became known as a photographer, Ziff was an award-winning art director/design director of magazines, including Vanity Fair, House & Garden, Condé Nast Traveler, New West, and Rolling Stone. Ziff taught magazine design, photography, and illustration at Art Center College in Pasadena, California, The School of Visual Arts in New York City, and for 13 years at Parsons School of Design in New York City. In 1999, he was elected to the Board of Trustees of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, his alma mater (1967).
