opened atDeutsches Haus at NYU in New York City !! For now, according to NYU Covid guidelines, this exhibition will only be open to NYU students, staff, and faculty, but the photographs will remain on display until the guidelines change. So, instead of a public opening we will eventually have a public closing event sometime in the future.
Meanwhile Deutsches Haus will present a virtual artist talk between journalist Claudia Steinberg and myself, to be announced soon. I will keep you posted. Find more information about the exhibition
In this award winning photo book New York City photographer Stefan Falke focuses on the resilience of his fellow New Yorkers, on moments of normalcy under exceptional circumstances during the pandemic in 2020. The positive attitude in these stunning photographs of his chosen hometown show New Yorkers doing what they always do: They keep going !! A series of photos from this book were awarded 2nd place for series by the American Society of Media Photographers in the Best of ASMP 2020 contest and it won the CA 2021 Award of Excellence and selected images were published in Communication Arts Photography Annual 62.
58 color photographs, 62 pages, 10×8 in, 25×20 cm, available as hard or soft cover.
With an introduction by New York journalist Claudia Steinberg.
But, it is worth noting that in todays publishing world the photo book photographer is usually asked to substantially help with the costs for printing etc; the publisher who will carry the entire financial burden of a photo book is becoming an increasingly rare species !
So this little book is a labor of love, something that I am proud of, something that kept me busy during those challenging months, and something that became – from my personal view – a lasting record of the streets of my chosen hometown New York City during the pandemic in 2020.
Congratulations to all winning photographers !! Great work by all winners on view on the ASMP contest website here

I focused on the resilience of my fellow New Yorkers, on moments of normalcy under exceptional circumstances during the worst time of the pandemic. I kept a positive attitude walking around my chosen hometown during those challenging times and photographed New Yorkers doing what they always do: They keep going !!
I keep going too, by shooting new videos and photos about the book and publishing the results here on a regular basis. So this blog is not only about the book but also about my new photo adventures in New York City. Having worked as a professional still photographer for a large part of my life, I am starting to enjoy shooting small and entertaining videos as well and I will share them with you here too, like the one above.
I hope you enjoy my new blog and if you like, you can preview (and/or order) my book here !!
