Product Description


During Spring 2020, when most New Yorkers were holed up inside or had fled what was then a COVID hot spot, Mark Seliger wandered the deserted streets in search of photographic silver linings in the midst of a pandemic. The photos he gathered slowly crystallized into a vision of Gotham as never before witnessed—glistening from spring rains yet fossilized in amber like the back lot of some fabled movie set.

We recently spoke with Seliger about his process in making these pictures, and his philanthropic efforts to donate 100% of the proceeds from his resulting book to New York Cares, the city’s largest volunteer network. Sumptuously printed using a 5-color black and gray ink set with a spot gloss varnish, The City That Finally Sleeps is currently available for purchase through Seliger’s website and his Instagram feed. B&H, in partnership with Sony, celebrates the release of this book as proud sponsors of Seliger’s project.

Jill Waterman: When did you start making pictures of New York City during COVID?

Mark Seliger: It was right after New York locked down. There was this sort of hyper-real moment with me noticing the West Village in full bloom during the height of spring. And there was something very strange that I had never seen before—the West Village without anybody there. I started to really carve this out as a project based on the response we were getting on Instagram from people who had either relocated or had left the city, knowing that they were going to be under lockdown for a minute. So, that was the first indicator.
