Photography: Color, Photo on Paper.
Inspired by Picasso and Braque who struggled with the two dimensional nature of the canvas and arrived at cubism (whilst watching movies together), my contact sheets allow me to ease aside the key photographic limitations of where to stand and when to press the shutter button; my works are made across hours or days, and from different locations relative to my subjects, allowing my work to subtly transcend time and space, describing urban phenomena in a more complex narrative that mimics how we truly perceive our surroundings, as an amalgam of many different impressions.
Here the iconic view and layout of Manhattan Island are captured from the viewing deck on top of the Rockefeller Centre. The foreground action featuring many tourists speaks to the psychological hold epic landmarks have and there importance in an urban plan.
This image shot over about twenty minutes using a Hasselblad CW and 100mm lens. The print is an archival pigment print made on luster paper.
