About this creation
My LEGO city was photographed for the cover of New York Magazine's March 8 2004 issue.

The published photos





The first photo was meant to go on the cover of the magazine. Unfortunately, the cover was pulled at the last minute. (The editor-in-chief actually quit the week before the issue was printed, and in that time, the new editor decided to use a blond woman on the cover instead.) :(


They, instead, ran this photo as a lead-in for the issue's Real Estate article, and included the text you see here.




This photo was used as a full-page compliment to the article. As an editorial on the housing probelms in Manhattan, the picture shows a long line of LEGO people who have assembled for an "open house".






New York Magazine logo in LEGO



The cover also would have included a LEGO version of the New York Magazine logo that I built.








The photo shoot




The photos were taken by a professional photographer named Holly Lindem who has done work for Discover Magazine, US News & World Report, and Popular Science, among others.

what a stupid move! we get to see nice blond girls all the time! the new person was kind of obtused minded,no vision! at least you showed them! i guess they have regretted it once they ve seen what you ve done? because it s pretty unimaginable to figure how spectacular your work is until it s actually done! poor judgement on their part! they should have known better! at least the new york people could count on YOU! amazing work!

Huh? They picked a bland photo of an ordinary-looking blonde woman over your extraordinary lego neighborhood??? What were they thinking?

Man if I knew your city was in the New York Magazine I would've wanted to buy it. But don't you live in Austin? If you do I sure wish you'd make a building from here.

Totally rocks! The cover photo and logo would have been absolutely sweet, but even so, it's a great media presence. Nice work, Sean! As always, my favorite part of the work is all the detail you pack into the scene. As you know, MichLTC members are assidiously trying to top the bar you've set so high.
