by BWW News Desk - October 15, 2014

The Museum of the City of New York presents Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao's New York: Assembled Realities,featuring more than 40 large-scale panoramic photographs of the City's urban landscape by Taiwanese artist Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, who came to New York to study photography in 1999 at the age of 18. Pushing the boundaries of traditional documentary photography, Liao (b. 1977) creates large-scale panoramas by combining multiple exposures of the same location taken over the course of several hours. The resulting composite photographs are often fantastical-complex, hyper-real views that no single shot-or the eye-could capture. Liao has spent the past decade honing his distinctive style, making images of his adopted city from the Grand Concourse to Coney Island, the old Shea Stadium to the 72nd Street Subway. Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao's New York: Assembled Realities opens today, October 15 and remains on view until Sunday, February 15, 2015. (more...)
