Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Vincent Laforet has logged many hours in helicopters to take pictures but latest are his most stunning. From an open door 7,500-feet above New York City, his project is called “Gotham 7.5K,” and is part of a "Night Over" series that will eventually feature other cities too. Its not surprising that his inspiration came from a window seat telling Business Insider, “I’ve been wanting to take these pictures since I was a teenager, peering out of a window of a jet liner. Every time I landed at La Guardia or JFK, I would see incredible lights in the city and in the streets of New York and I’ve always wanted to try to find a way to make these photographs."
