CONLUENCE, NEW YORK: New York-6
CONFLUENCE, NEW YORK
New York has always been a place of change, and lately it seems to be increasingly and rapidly shifting, reshaping, and vanishing. Along with this, I personally have experienced the feeling that time is precious. Beginning about two and a half years ago, all the incidental work of doing photography weighed on me
to the point where I stopped taking photographs. What
I found, though, was that the images of New York continued to impress themselves on my imagination.
I recently decided I had to get back to capturing them again on film.
For a long time, I have wanted to do a large-scale project on New York, my hometown. I have a sense of urgency, though, both with my feelings of getting older and with the rapidity of the changes in the city. Lately,
I have been photographing feverishly, night after night, finding new aspects of the landscape to capture at
After over 10 years of shooting black and white images, choosing to shoot color has rejuvenated my art. Per my usual practice, I am shooting at night, where the long exposures invite surprises.
