Nic Lehoux: The New Whitney Museum is an in depth, photographic exploration of the new Whitney Museum designed by Renzo Piano, in New York. Nic Lehoux was commissioned by architect Renzo Piano and the museum to document its first year of opening in 2015-2016. Using his unique approach mixing architectural photography and photojournalism, Nic captured this exciting new museum from the neighborhood scale down to the intimacy of the individual galleries. In this way, this book documents the soul of this museum, and its effect on the changing Meatpacking District. The book also includes a selection of insightful conceptual drawings by Renzo Piano, with whom Nic collaborated extensively during the documentation process. Renzo Piano’s vision is captured through a symbiosis of these drawings and the photographs. With an in depth interview by author Fred Bernstein.

Fred Bernstein studied architecture (at Princeton) and law (at NYU) and writes about both subjects. He has contributed more than 400 articles, most of them on architecture and design, to the New York Times, and hundreds more to other publications. In 2008 he won the Oculus Award, bestowed annually by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for excellence in architecture writing.

Nic Lehoux has been an architectural photographer for over 20 years, and a passionate observer of light, architecture and the human condition his entire life. His worked is grounded in the rigour of large format film photography that defined his earlier career—that rigour is combined with a truly progressive approach to the documentation of spaces with people. His work has a uniquely strong and distinct signature. It is informed by the traditions of architectural photography, the sensitivities of modern photojournalism, and a keen understanding of both architecture and the way people move within a space.

Using an arsenal of medium format photographic tools and lighting techniques, Nic relies primarily on in-camera approaches to documentation and less on postproduction digital manipulation. Nic Lehoux has worked closely with some of the world’s most respected architects, defining in photographs what makes their work unique. His work has been published regularly in every major architectural publication, and in hundreds of books, as well as exhibited in galleries and museums internationally.
