North Brother Island: A History in 3D
North Brother Island is an enigmatic no man's land, lying in the East River between the Bronx and Riker's Island (New-York, USA). Matthew Schlanger, a Nyack, (NY, USA) resident with a sailboat and a keen sense of adventure, accompanied a friend to visit the abandoned chunk of land back in 2007.
Matthew Schlanger brought along a stereoscopic 3D camera, and later decided to turn the series of photographs into the book available now available as an e-book ready to be downloaded to your iPad.
