New York Glow II is the second part of a series that captures beautiful images of the Big Apple created by Brussels-based creative director and photographer Xavier Portela. New York Glow belongs to the ongoing project titled Glow, which immortalizes picturesque and unique aspects of world-famous cities – such as Tokyo, Bangkok and Hong Kong – at night, putting a wonderful layer of ‘neon color varnish’ on them.
Over the last ten years, I traveled to New York six times. However last time, while working on my glow project around Times Square, I also took another point of view over the city. So here is the second part of this collection about New York, this time from a helicopter.Xavier Portela
