FLYING, Sachigusa Yasuda's aptly titled recent body of work comprises a series of large-scale photographs that explore the visual and psychological effects of exaggerated and forced perspectives on New York City architecture. The three point perspective views and impossible angles and vistas - formed by collaging hundreds of digital images into seamless photographs - presents a series of dizzying and chilling scenes. In Yasuda's photographs Manhattan - arguably the most reproduced and mythologized subject on earth - is pictured as a dark metropolis, vertiginous, and magnificent.
