From The Midwest Book Review: Zina Saunders is a New York artist who has worked as a writer and illustrator for more than fifteen years. In "Overlooked New York: Impassioned New Yorkers from an Artist's Perspective" she has taken as her subject matter a impressive variety of her fellow New Yorkers who are distinguished by their hobbies, interests, pastimes, and pursuits. From rooftop pigeon fanciers, to houseboat residents, to bike messengers, to carnival costume designers, and more, her series of portraitures are enhanced with succinctly descriptive commentaries on who they are and their personal histories which she obtained with interviews while she painted them engaged in their various activities. The result is an impressive body of informed and informative art, making "Overlooked New York" an unusual and highly recommended addition for personal, academic, and community library regional American art reference collections.
