This artfully crafted coffee table book by renowned photographer Dan Winters showcases the true beauty and realism of New York City.

Rocky Nook Inc., a photography book publishing company, has just released its most anticipated fine art book to date.

In "The Grey Ghost: New York City Photographs", Dan Winters turns his eye to New York City, collecting nearly 100 black-and-white images he created there in the years after moving to New York from California in 1987 at the age of 25. A highly personal collection, The Grey Ghost reveals an artist finding his voice, discovering “that elusive method that informs the manner in which we perceive and interpret our surroundings.”

Winters is well known for the broad range of subject matter he is able to interpret, and he has had his photographs published in Esquire, GQ, Vanity Fair, the New York Times Magazine, the New Yorker, Time, Texas Monthly, Wired, Fortune, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Newsweek, and many other national and international publications. His previous books include Dan Winters: Periodical Photographs, Last Launch, America: Icons and Ingenuity, and Road to Seeing.

In the "The Grey Ghost"—which features icons of New York City such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, as well as everyday moments captured on the street―Winters presents the seemingly ordinary and commonplace in ways that captivate and make the viewer look much more closely.

As Winters writes, New York “has acted as a proving ground and a rite of passage for countless photographers,” beginning with Alfred Stieglitz and Paul Strand. The majority of the images in "The Grey Ghost" were created between 1987 and 1990, but the book also includes images created as recently as 2016. For those interested in street photography, New York City, black-and-white imagery, or the earlier work of one of today’s most compelling photographers, "The Grey Ghost" is a must-have addition to your photo book collection.

Selected photographs featured in "The Grey Ghost" will be exhibited at the Fahey/Klein Gallery ( in Los Angeles beginning September 8, 2016.
