This gallery was totally custom built for Lazarus. It simply does not exist in the real world. But as Lazarus images are such incredibly high resolution, they need to be printed big and viewed big. Some of the images are over 400 megapixels in size. The detail is phenomenal.
Take a walk around this extraordinary gallery. As always , we recommend clicking on full screen for the best effect.

“The Nightographer” Lazarus Baptiste is a celebrated celebrity makeup artist and beauty brand ambassador turned cityscape photographer. “Makeup taught me to previsualize and photography taught me to see.” Lazarus is a specialist in panoramic night cityscapes, and he prints BIG. His image of the New York skyline “Twilight Light”, featured in Vienna Austria, is a world record contender for the largest exhibition quality print ever mounted and framed in one piece. “Twilight Light” was printed by Stefan Fiedler at an astounding 8.2 x 31.8 feet with a resolution of 1200 dpi. His other works have been presented by Chromaluxe at Photokina in Cologne Germany at a more modest 4 x 8 feet.
Lazarus was born in Port-au-Prince Haiti and immigrated to Brooklyn, New York at age 11. “I started makeup in 1994 and photography in ’96. For a while, I did both but when I was offered the opportunity to co-design the Philippe Privé cosmetics line, I chose to focus on makeup and put my Minolta away.”
Once Lazarus did everything he wanted to do in makeup, it was time to pick up the camera again. Lazarus’ first project “NYCANDI” is a 7year photographic love poem to the city of New York. He takes on the moniker “The Nightographer” because of his love of night photography and the unique challenges it presents. Lazarus lists Fan Ho, Gordon Parks, William Klein, Brassaï, Hugh Bell and Ansel Adams among his photography heroes.
