Manhattan in "Jewel-Box"
Tamas Revesz's photo book on New York in its black/white jacket looks like a Jewel-Box. When you open the box, you can see the images, like pieces of jewelry. Each of them is unique and precious one. The composition, the vision, the message, the humor, the sense of humanity, etc are together in the pictures. If you read the lyric text of Introduction, you can understand the sensitiveness of the photographer. He came from Eastern-Europe, Hungary, and has got the same wit, as his late colleagues had got and became famous in the United States, Robert Capa, Andre Kertesz. The image on the front of the jacket looks like a painting. The towers of the World Trade Center under the grayish, before the storm clouds, in front the ruins of the old dock of the age of Ellis Island and the free bird flying. All of them are a kind of symbol. But on the back of the jacket you can see the lion of the Public Library in stovepipe-hat and butterfly-bow made you laugh. The lion is so gentle, sweet, as you can grab a sample of the contrapuntal approaching, which is the most important attribute of Tamas Revesz. The jewelries in the book have got the same message. The hectic, hustle-bustle city sometimes looks like a quiet, sleepy small town in the country because of the long shadows, the sunbathing people during lunchtime, the sitting and watching people on the street. The main point are not the glossy glass skyscrapers, as in the most photo books for tourists, but the humankind in these circumstances. You can enjoy these images either a native of New York, or a tourist from wherever.

Amazing creative view of New York Jan. 6 2006
By Herbert Benkel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was amazed at what I saw when I opened this book of amazing images of New York. The eye that created these photographs is that of a sensitive and first rate photographic artist. Looking at Revesz's images remind you of the relationship of the city and it's famous places to it's people...It is a very loving, cosmopolitan vision from a photographer who is a transplant to New York from Hungary. I have never seen a more wonderful take on our spectacular city. I recommend this as a great book for anyone who wants more than just pretty colorful images that we've seen hundreds of times before....
