Using a digital camera and digital imaging technology, photographer Nick Wood has developed a new way to photograph landscapes and cityscapes, placing the viewer in the center of dramatic 360 panoramas. Exploring New York and London with this equipment, he documents his favorite places. The resulting books are perfect souvenirs of great cities and intriguing photographic adventures.
Each book visits famous landmarks as well as hip and popular spots off the beaten path in spectacular 360º photographs. Numerous visual details give a sense of closer involvement with a scene. The long, landscape format is suited to the style of the photographic images, and each volume has one amazing gatefold. Included with each book is a Mac- and PC-compatible CD-ROM with QuickTime movies of all the sites.
360º New York visits some of the city's major landmarks as well as favorite spots of New York insiders. Among the many scenes captured are the Empire State Building, Wall Street, Times Square, Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Waldorf Astoria, as well as the Empire Diner, the Chelsea Hotel, a firehouse, a neighborhood bar, and even a salon for New York's most pampered dogs. The book is a virtual visit to the city in which the vibrant diversity and sense of bigness is clearly conveyed, particularly in a marvelous panoramic foldout of the skyline at twilight.

Nick Wood is a London-based photographer whose work spans a broad range of subjects, from portraiture to architecture. His particular fascination with 360º photography has led to this collection of images.From Publishers Weekly:
Wood's panoramic photographs of New York City skylines, subway stations, bridges and landscapes may disorient readers at first, but ultimately this collection should impress them. A London-based photographer, Wood presents 100 full-color photos depicting dizzying views of various Big Apple landmarks. Some scenes work better than others. For example, the shot of the 60-year-old Empire Diner, which reveals a chrome counter, barstools, tables, windows and even the outside patio-all in one long photograph-seems warped, as if Wood twisted the restaurant's interior to make it fit inside the photo. Other scenes are easier to grasp, such as the panorama of Madison Square Park, which shows the sanctuary's wide paths and park benches and captures the Empire State Building in the distance. The four-panel centerfold is breathtaking. Taken from an East Midtown rooftop, it shows the city at dusk, with the sun setting behind the Hudson River and the moon rising up over Brooklyn. For New York natives and tourists alike, Wood presents a fresh, intriguing view of the city.
