Eyeshot Magazine #7
New York City
“New York City” is the seventh issue of Eyeshot Magazine, published in September 2021. Eyeshot is proud to announce that this issue is produced in exclusive collaboration with the NYC Street Photography Collective.
Thanks to the idea and curatorship of Marco Savarese, Eyeshot begins a new adventure by exploring the world with new issues based on a specific theme: cities of the world.
We start with New York City because it represents them all: its many personalities depict life in all its vibrance.
Paper limited edition
The new “New York City” mag is published as a one limited-edition print run of 500 copies, limited in both quantity and quality. Since Eyeshot was founded, we made it our mission: hand-numbered and autographed publications represent the essence of Eyeshot.
Eyeshot no.7 “New York City” is printed on Fedrigoni X-Per paper and measures 21×27 cm when closed. In total, it has 250 pages featuring 24 Street Photographers.
Front cover by Mathias Wasik, back cover by Jorge Garcia. Opening text by Veronica Gabbuti.
Made in Italy
Fedrigoni Papers | X-Per
Eyeshot uses only papers from Fedrigoni, an Italian paper mill founded in 1888 in Verona. All Fedrigoni’s papers are FSC® certified, made from pure ECF pulp. Every product is fully biodegradable and recyclable.
X-Per Premium White 14og/m2 is a sharp and uncoated paper with a special treatment to enhance the feeling and allow for particularly sharp and brilliant printing. Its opacity and print contrast makes it an extraordinary choice for publishing Eyeshot’s exclusive magazines.
EFC: ELEMENTARY CHLORINE FREE | It’s an environmentally friendly type of paper that has been bleached with products free of elemental chlorine. By replacing it with chlorine dioxide, polluting emissions are reduced by 90%.
FSC® MIX | The Forest Stewardship Council is one of the internationally recognised forestry certification systems, which guarantees the proper management of forests and the traceability of the resulting products.
HEAVY METAL ABSENCE | Paper and packaging are produced in a way that allows them to be reused and recycled. The absence of harmful metals and other substances and materials that are hazardous to human health is guaranteed.
LONG LIFE: ISO 9706 | This certification ensures that paper production recycles more CO2 than it emits, thus reducing the release of CO2 into the atmosphere that causes global warming. In compliance with ISO 9706 standards, the paper we use is acid-free which gives it resistance to light, wear and tear, and durability over time. It can be stored for up to 200 years.
An original piece to celebrate New York City
The collective - NYC Street Photography Collective
NYC-SPC, a non-profit 501(c)3, is a collective made up of a small group of passionate street photographers that are dedicated to creating and sharing the art of capturing life in public spaces. The group was founded by Jorge Garcia in early 2015.

IN THE WORDS OF FRANK MULTARI - “New York is everything to me”
«New York is always on, whether you are or not. No matter how much energy or how many rolls of film you have, whatever your will is to keep up, you will have to stop at some point while the city plays on, a multiverse of uncaptured moments. […] New York is everything to me. I hear others feel the same».
TO QUOTE DIANA CUAUTLE - “There was no better time to exist as one in this city than now”
«…And to have that wonderment to see, feel, hear and touch the city more than ever before. […] The streets of New York City reveal so much once you become integrated into it. Passing quickly in and out of existence, you notice these transient visitors that have a story».

IN THE WORDS OF AARON BUNGE - “New York City has a rhythm and a flow to it”
«I like to walk the streets as I have somewhere to be, just like everyone else around me. I put on my serious face, my shield, and get started. New York City has a rhythm and flow to it […] The light transforms the chaos into a Renaissance painting, full of drama and beauty».
TO QUOTE MICHELLE RICK - “Everything about NYC seems ephemeral”
«That is the nature of every corner in New York. […] Buildings go up and down. People die and move away. Whole neighborhoods change. But if you keep a photographic record of a place, you can see change even if everything looks the same […]. This is time travel. And it’s magic».
