Dreams of New York is a project that evolved out of Forth + Back’s ongoing love affair with the East Coast and specifically New York. They began wandering the streets of New York through Google Earth and eventually started to document the strange frozen images of life they found there. After countless digital forays into this weird wonderful landscape, they realized that there was something special happening that they wanted to share with the world.
Dreams of New York is a dream-like documentation of their digital ramblings of New York over the past three years. The project has culminated into a 200 page coffee table book published by Aint—Bad, as well as a website that showcases a selection of images.
Dreams of New York was also selected as one of AIGA’s winners of the 50 Books / 50 Covers competition for 2019.
