A portrait of New York as seen through more than 40 large-scale panoramic photographs of the city's urban landscape. Five Boroughs: Photographs by Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao features more than 40 works by this Taiwanese artist, who came to New York at age 18 to study photography. Pushing the boundaries of traditional documentary photography, Liao (b. 1977) creates large-scale panoramas by combining multiple exposures of the same location taken over the course of several hours. The resulting composite photographs are often fantastical - complex, hyper-real views that no single shot - or the eye - could capture. Liao has spent the past decade honing his distinctive style, making images of his adopted city from the Grand Concourse to Coney Island, the old Shea Stadium to the 72nd Street Subway.

Venue Description: Open 7 days a week, 10am-6pm. $10; $6, seniors/students; free, 12 & under.
