Lower East Side alley on a bitterly cold winter night. New York City.
I have some great news to share. I was contacted by Overlook Press a few months back regarding commercial usage of one of my photos from this past winter for the cover of an upcoming book by David Zeltserman. Of course I agreed!
The book is called A Killer’s Essence and it will be released on October 13, 2011. You can view the page for A Killer’s Essence on Amazon here and you can read some recent reviews of the book on Overlook Press’s blog.
If you are curious about what the book jacket looks like, I have the original photo, the book cover and the back of the book jacket all on display on my Google Plus Profile here:
The photo was taken last January on a night with windchill below zero degrees fahrenheit and temperatures that were rather unforgiving. I love walking around at night in winter all bundled up but this night was almost unbearable. I can almost feel the frigid wind on my face when I look at this photo. New York City in the midst of winter is not the friendliest of places but it does possess a certain stark beauty during the colder months.
