Aperture visits photographer Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao in his Queens, NY studio to discuss his recent monograph.

 - November 4, 2014

With painstaking care and the use of multiple exposures, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao stitches images together to create detail-driven panoramas of the New York City landscape. We visited Liao at his home studio in Queens, NY, where he showed us what’s behind his unique perspective of the city, and took us through his recently published monograph, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao: New York.

Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao: New York includes photographs taken over the last ten years. From rehabilitated Coney Island to the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, from the demise of Shea Stadium in Queens to the newly built One World Trade Center, Liao has created a lasting document of a significant period of transformation of New York’s skyline and social fabric.
