Eugene de Salignac

The New Yorker site has a short history and slide show about Eugene de Salignac, who photographed New York's bridges from 1903 to 1934 when he worked for the Department of Bridges (later the Department of Plant and Structures). Michael Lorenzini, of the Municipal Archives of the City of New York, has now collected the best of de Salignac’s photos in his book “New York Rises” (Aperture; $40); the exhibition opens May 4th at the Museum of the City of New York. Fascinating glimpse of turn of the century New York.
