One photographer's passion project; a stunning collection of unique, enchanting images of a seasonal snowy New York that everyone can cherish

The iconic city of New York is a bustling, heady metropolis that, thanks to the power of media, everyone in the world knows intimately, even if they've never been. But every once in a while it changes completely. At first a few flakes will fall, then more, and more. Hardened New Yorkers rush for warmth and, while they're absent, an amazing, glistening almost deserted winter wonderland momentarily appears.

It is these moments that phenomenally popular photo-blogger Vivienne Gucwa lives for. She has been documenting them for more than a decade, rushing out to capture the city in snow. Of all the photos that have made her the celebrated, award-winning success that she is, it is these that are most loved, both online and in print, so we offer them here in a sumptous volume to be enjoyed by anyone who loves New York, whether from afar, as an occasional visitor, or if you've never left the Big Apple.

It's a great tabletop book that goes through her settings, the story of some of the images created. The words are poetic and go with the imagery and it's one of those books you'd curl up in a blanket, some hot cocoa and slowly read it cover to cover and drift off to sleep dreaming of snowy New York nights. — Diana Elizabeth
If you've been looking for some inspiration-winter is coming-to get out in the snow and make some photographs NY in the Snow is the book for you. — Joe Farace
Since 2010, Vivienne Gucwa, a travel photographer and writer, has been documenting winter in the city. "NY in the Snow: A Magical Vision of New York City" (Ilex) captures the best of the season - a briefly white blanket that imposes an eerie stillness - without the shoveling or sloshing. — Sam Roberts, The New York Times
