Publisher description 
  
“I came to New York to find something that I’d always wanted. I did not know what it was. Now I know. It was happiness. That was the beginning of the story.” – Madoka Takagi  
  
Madoka Takagi’s long-awaited first monograph, My Place, previously existed only as a self-published artists’ book. The Museum of Modern Art and The Getty Museum each acquired a set for their permanent collection. Traveling throughout the city with an 8 x 10-inch view camera and making elegant contact platinum prints, Takagi may not have found happiness but she did start a story: a tale etched in light and metal about finding a place and making it special. From the Municipal Building to the Cathedral Saint John the Divine, from Coney Island to Roosevelt Island, from East Houston Street to Frederick Douglas Boulevard, from the Brooklyn Navy Yard to the Bronx Zoo, Takagi finds a city transformed by a magical light into a place of stillness and beauty. This book is a facsimile of one of the original artists’ books, printed in a limited first edition of 1,000 copies.
