WHY I LOVE

NEW YORK CITY

WHEN AN INSTAGRAM HIT BECOMES A BOOK

We created BOOKX COMPANY for a book! A book about that New Yotk City Feeling.

WHY I LOVE NEW YORK CITy: not a book about architecture, design or skylines. a book about life, love and feelings. Eljay Aguillo is a real New York lover. And a real lover. Since 2012, with his urban style that’s smart, sharp and sincere, Eljay has shot more than a thousand photos of everyday New Yorkers against bokeh-lit backdrops of New York City’s streets, parks, lights and landmarks.

All photographies are paired with quotes about life in New York that are alternately insightful, touching and funny, but nearly always romantic.

All photographies by Eljay Aguillo (@WhyILoveNewYorkCity/@W57th) with photographers Katelyn Rose Lancaster (@KatelynRoseFoto) & Erick Urgiles (@ErickHercules)
