Signs & Storefronts of NYC

Fine Art Photography by Chris Petsos
Specializing in Limited Edition Large Formats

 

Signs and storefronts represent a moment in time in the evolution of this ever-changing city. These photos portray New York City at the beginning of the 21st Century, a time when sweeping economic and demographic changes are bringing about the loss of many iconic New York establishments. I want my photos to contribute to the record of what is here now, before it's gone forever.

Select from a range of limited edition large format metal prints in sizes up to 45x68" for a show stopping display, or open edition archival paper prints up to 20x30" for an affordable yet dramatic accent suited to smaller spaces. Recommended sizes are noted under each image, with custom sizes available upon request for certain images.
