Daniel Weiss’s stark black and white photos of New York are historical documentations of the ever-evolving city

LocationNew York, United States

New York-born, Upper West side-raised photographer Daniel Weiss knows the essence of NYC as well as he knows the barrel of the Leica lens he has been looking through since he was a kid, and it shows in every aspect of his decade-long photo series New York. Shot across 2006-2016, the series picks up on the contrasted and composed shots of Diane Arbus, yet propels her subjects into modernity.

Weiss’s Eternal Youth in Tompkins Square Park follows the same Arbus-esque vein, with the photographer capturing modern youth culture in New York. Beyond NYC, Weiss shoots life off American highways and editorials for Dazed – like our recent portfolio of creatives selected by cult designer Andre Walker.

Weiss both follows in the esteemed footsteps of and breaks away from the traditions of his documentary forebears – if this is anything to go by, his photos will become vital to future generations seeking to understand New York after the turn of the millennium.
