Times Square, twilight

[ New York | 9th September 2003 ]


There are urban squares which function as places where one stops for a pause, to sit down, converse: Times Square is the contrary, a frenetic space where the population, in a condition akin to "just in time", crosses and disappears...

Times Square is a deep and narrow, scissors shaped space. These images constitute the raw material for a future work of interactive photography, which shall represent Times Square through the crossing of people in a flow of perpetual haste. The ensemble is composed of several series of photographs distributed throughout the square so as to scrutinize the dynamic generated at each point, on the pavements and the pedestrian crossings. They were taken using the "gutworks" technique.
