Photo of the Day: Megalopolises From the Tops of Skyscrapers

Navid Baraty takes photos of the big cities climbing on high-raised buildings.

Brooklyn-based photographer Navid Baraty posts street photos of New York, San-Francisco, Hong Kong and Tokyo taken from skyscrapers. The photographer has worked on the project called “Intersection” for more than six years.

In 2013 in his interview with Gothamist, Baraty revealed, “the real life of the city can best be captured by pointing the lens straight down from high above.”
