This photo is so incredible. It’s so mysterious. I absolutely love how awkward the framing is. Between two windows. Not really showing any one thing directly, yet showing a very real four feet of the world. I love love love it. This is the kind of photo that inspires a short story. xo! D
As Leonard Cohen, Canadian poet-singer-songwriter extraordinaire, sang: “thereâ€™s music on clinton street all through the evening….” Thank you for capturing some of this mythic street’s magic with your lens.
I’m almost as fascinated by the response to the photo as the photo itself. It’s interesting to me that the woman in the photo is so judged by what she ornaments her body with in such a harsh way. I think your readership thinks a bit much of itself. You know, in the end we are all pavement my friends. Pavement. Those names might mean more to her than your designer duds will ever mean to you or anyone else.
Thanx for showing us the rest of the world you see. An appropriate response to those who say you stage everything with fashion shoot leftovers.
I think one of the best things you captured in this pic Sart, is the dimly lit "I <3 NY" bags on the right side. I also like that the composition is different than most of your photos (and it's unique in and of itself), prob because your not trying to show an outfit – but the change is nice.
East Village( far east, Ave. C) and L.E.S. still has some of that raw NYC flavor. You captured it well in this photo! And from reading the comments so far, it seems like people are responding well to this different type of imagery. Great photograph!
The restaurant facade in this photo was painted for the Julie Taymor movie, “Across the Universe.” The film used Clinton and Rivington Street for a set. They painted facades and doors up and down the two streets. It’s a great movie.
Wow. Friedlander in colour … with attitude!! I LOVE this shot. The fonts, the signage, the light … seriously one of my favorite photos in so long. (Not just yours .. I'm talking the photography world in general.) I want to hear Danzinger's take on it … Did I mention Wow?
