New York: First Impression, 2000
Page 1 of 1

When I first went to New York in 2000, I was not sure whether I would find the place interesting as a photographer, because I don't usually find cities particularly inspiring. Yet I was enraptured by its monumentality as soon as I saw it. The skyscrapers did not seem like dehumanized monsters, but spiritually imbued structures climbing up to the light and the heights like cathedrals, trees, or the elongated body of a giraffe (which I happened to take a picture of in New York Zoo as an interesting parellel). To my surprise, the huge billboards also inspired me, combining to form a peculiar link between commercial creative art and what is today classic architecture.
