Dolly on "I Love New York"

For her latest series, “I Love New York,” Dolly Faibyshev became a tourist in her home city and captured locations rarely visited twice—from atop a sightseeing bus to behind a telescope on the Empire State Building. The images, with Dolly’s signature bold colors and quirk, encourage even the most jaded New Yorkers to take a fresh look at the Big Apple. Read more on the series below.

“I started this project as an exercise, at a time when I was feeling uninspired by my surroundings. Having lived in this city for about ten years, I was getting used to everything, and it was taking more effort to notice something in a new way.”

“I watched my city from a new height, and explored landmarks that I never bothered to appreciate before.”
