As we considered the different opportunities for imagery on Wednesday, it quickly became clear that one option was a picture of the island of Manhattan taken from the air, showing the clear delineation of lights on and off in different parts of the city. We called Iwan Baan, one of our contributing photographers, to see if he happened to be in New York at the moment. (He is based out of Amsterdam, but travels the world, and often stops by New York.) Baan’s photography focuses primarily on contemporary architecture and its relationship to the urban language of the city. He shoots from every possible perspective, including high up in the air from planes and helicopters. “That view of Manhattan, I had it in mind because I’d shot it a number of times before,” he said on Monday from Haiti, where he’s already on another international assignment.

New York Magazine — always a good read.
