Point of View New York City
A book talk with Janko Puls
Upon moving to the East Village in 2006, Janko Puls quickly realized that New York City was changing faster than he could get to know it. Being a photographer, it was natural for him to use his camera as a tool towards understanding and documenting the city around him. He began taking photos from unusual angles or catching some easily missed architectural element. The results not only offered a profound perspective on a locale, but playfully challenged the viewer’s understanding of it.
Collected in the new book Point of View New York City, these images form the map of “The City” that the author has created from his explorations. From this he offers an illustrated lecture that will describe his creative process and invite the audience to join in the riddle game he has created through his photography.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
