Out of Many

Almost a year-and-a-half after the pandemic emptied out streets and shuttered nightlife, New York started to come back to life. To show how reanimated the city had become, I created a series of large format long exposures. Shot on 4x5 large format film, each image is exposed for a minute-and-a-half (a reference to the year-and-a-half isolation). By leaving the lens open for so long, the movements of individual elements transform into a collective blur of motion and activity.
