Author bio
Sasha Vosk emigrated to New York from Russia in 1981. Greatly enjoying his newly acquired freedom of professional choice, he successfully pursued several career paths, ranging from being a sought-after photorealistic illustrator and a mural artist to an award-winning filmmaker and entertainment producer. He received Emmy and Telly awards for his productions of HBO’s film “Billy Crystal—Midnight Train to Moscow" and PBS’ “Moscow Circus: A Winter’s Tale.” Sasha was also a successful producer of the Moscow Circus' international tours.
Educated as an architect and photorealistic illustrator, Vosk started his professional life in New York as a busy illustrator. His work regularly appeared in a number of leading publications, including The New York Times.
A devoted New Yorker for 39 years, he is a history buff and a member of the New York Historical Society. Since he is strongly attracted to New York City’s history, Sasha had been looking for ways to recreate its lost visual past for over a decade. The answer came with the latest development of the computer-generated-art technology that Vosk combined with traditional art and photography. In this book, Sasha blends his studies of New York’s history with his professional expertise as an illustrator and an architect. Employing the technological tools of the 21st century, he led his computer-art team to capture the photorealistic images of New York from the time of the city’s birth.
He intends to devote his knowledge, passion, and experience to this terrifically exciting project, which is designed to bringing New York’s history to the forefront of the public’s focus.
