Lego, Photography and New York – is there anything more that you really need from a book? This book is delightful and whimsical and in the ICP library TR656.5 N541 2010.

Christoph Niemann uses his son’s LEGO to construct and capture everything that says New York City. A Nathan’s hot dog, the Staten Island Ferry, 3 empty subway seats and a plastic bag caught in tree branch to name but a few of his ‘staged images’.  Flicking through this book is quite possibly equal to the authentic experience of being in the big apple (although a LEGO apple image is lacking from this collection). This is a true minimalist New York in a chunky board book format.
