nyc photos by miriam danar: times square, street, noir, futurism

Welcome to ShootingNYPhotos, where artistic license meets traditional street.

“Street life, and the noir that is forever the soul of New York: that's MY town. Steel and stone, flesh and bone. I shoot with passion. The City is my beat.” - Miriam Danar

Old-time street, romantic Gotham mood, and extreme-edited cityscapes in glittering color. 


"I'm Harvey Gabor.  I've had a 40-plus year career as an art director and creative director in advertising and I've worked with all the big talents in photography.  I've followed photography to this day.  All pretty good. Then I ran into Miriam Danar.  Her stuff is the freshest work I've seen since my career began.  Her color is realistic and looks like quartz glass.  Fresh, beautiful.  New. 

Miriam. I've used dozens of photographers in my torturous career. Bert Stern, Harold Becker, Irving Penn, Steve Horn, and all the rest. I think you're up there with them. You're just as good and the next generation. (Never bullshit anybody about talent.)"

Harvey Gabor, Legendary Art Director - Advertising Hall of Fame for "I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke (The First United Chorus of the World)" ... Without you, Harvey, "Mad Men" would not have had the spectacular ending that it did!
