about Yuichi Hibi, who photographed the noir side of New York City at night with a point-and-shoot camera between 1992 and 2002.

Bonnie Yochelson of the New York Times writes:
Mr. Hibi’s Manhattan has largely disappeared. “Those empty spaces, dark alleys and deserted streets are the victim of a brighter, reconstructed world that has lost its appeal for me,” he said recently in an e-mail message. “New York is beginning to resemble any other international city and has lost its edge, in spite of its breathtaking verticality.”
