Somewhere in midtown around 35th street and 5th avenue on a rooftop overlooking New York City photographer Daniel Riley made magic happen. In his exclusive editorial for NAKID today he and model Cleopatra King took hanging out on rooftops and made it even more than retro cool, they made it sexy as hell.
He and Cleo have been friends for a while now, so it was fitting they have a few drinks, take some snaps and play with vertigo. As an architect in his daily life, Riley likes the expression of form within the built environment. The balance between freedom of self-expression and the conformity of the stone grid we live in. It’s beautiful being able to find tranquility and quiet within such a dense landscape.
