His photographs view a life of romance, escape and optimism. They give me a way out. I love Lloyd for most of the same reasons.
- Annie Leibovitz
Brilliant!!!! Honestly, it is the best photography I have seen in a long, long time. I am knocked out. Both volumes take my breath away. And, how well they work together: West Coast/East Coast, left and right, red and blue, black and white. This an incredible body of work, perfectly presented.
– Gail Buckland, Author, Curator of Photography
Lloyd Ziff’s New York is an intriguingly idiosyncratic portrait of the city he has photographed over four decades. He ranges freely. Unconfined by time or subject, he randomly enriches our idea of what the city represents – Sir Harold Evans, Journalist, Author, Editor
Lloyd Ziff's photographs are available for sale as either archival silver-gelatin prints or digital Giglée prints. The silver-gelatin prints were printed pre-2004, & made from an original, unretouched negative and printed according to the exacting standards demanded by collectors and museums in the field of fine art photography, printed on 'Forte Elegance' Exhibition Grade, Warmtone, Semi-matt, Fiber Base Photographic Paper and processed in chemistry formulated for archival permanence. As a result of the digital revolution, it is no longer possible to produce these prints, & Ziff's photographs are now made as Digital Giglée prints using Epson's archival papers and Epson UltraChrome K3 Archival Inks. This gives the prints an archival life expectancy of more than 300 years.
