Central Park is New York City's great treasure-an accessible haven for young and old, rich and poor, city-dweller or tourist, to exercise or relax, to take in its beauty and appreciate its multiple points of interest. This book reflects the breadth of photographic possibilities afforded by this unparalleled venue. With more than 250 photographs, in color as well as black and white, this attractive book captures the diversity of today's Park against the kaleidoscopic background of the changing seasons. From landscapes to still life flora, with a broad cross-section of people engaged in multiple pursuits, plus animals of the caged, wild and domesticated varieties, along with scenic waterways, craggy rocks and remarkable statuary-it's all there in the center of Manhattan, and many of the finest sights can be found in the pages of Central Park. Mirroring, in Freund's view, the Park's availability to all, photography has become the most accessible of the arts, issuing a standing invitation to everyone to partake. In this spirit, the book contains a valuable section containing non-technical tips to Park visitors carrying a camera, even the disposable variety, on how to go about photographing the Park-how to "see the picture." Each point is illustrated by helpful reference to specific photos. This is a book for New Yorkers, as well as for tourists who flock from all over the world to the City's stellar attraction.
