James Maher Photography
the skint

We'll let today's images speak for themselves. Except: they're the work of NYC-based fine art and studio photographer James Maher, who has some wonderful travel prints on his site and terrific portraits. Not surprisingly, though, we're especially taken with his New York photography. In the spring, in the snow, in color, in black and white, at all times of day and night, Mr. Maher's love for New York is evident. It's also contagious.

See more of his work here and at his blog. Unframed prints are available for purchase starting at $95. You can also get them framed or matted and unframed.

skint - adj. british slang (1930-35)
