THANKSGIVING MORN

For urban environments, the greatest constant is continuous change. A public domain of transition, circulation and exchange - interlocking spaces experienced as fragments and splinters.

 

But still, lies the possibility to carve significance from this chaos.

 

To mine for richer incident, texture and stimuli. When the norm is temporarily shifted, an environment shimmers with new potential. Lingering in these disrupted moments one discovers an environment of renewed possibility - leftover voids become lived-in spaces. Routines overwritten with an uncommon rhythm.

 

On Thanksgiving Day morning, the ceaseless city stops. Pausing, briefly, in a liminal light.

 

A series from Thursday, 23 November, in the neighbourhood of Washington Heights, NYC.
