A sign of the instances: is this really what is fashionable in 2013?
Eye Tattoos

This photo was taken on the east side of 6th Ave, among 43rd and 44th Street …

I am no fashion specialist, but I’m quite confident I never ever saw anything like this in the 70s, 80s, or 90s … or even the initial ten years of this new millennium.

And somehow, I think that if I stroll down this street ten years from now, I won’t see a red-and-white outfit like this …

But for now, possibly it is fashionable…


This set of photographs is primarily based on a really easy concept: stroll every single block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what occurs. To stay away from missing anything, stroll each sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be much more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that is much more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I will leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, more adventurous photographers.

Oh, truly, there is one particular more tiny detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact concentrate on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot photographs, I will have taken more than 8,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus an additional several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the a variety of spots in NYC where I traditionally take images. So I do not count on to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photographs, and hope that I will be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to pick the tiny subset of every-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. 1st, I will upload any photo that I believe is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, &quotI have no concept when or where that photo was taken, but it’s really a terrific picture!&quot

A second criterion has to do with spot, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I will take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anyone who looks at it. Certainly, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I’ll discover other, much more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to a person from an additional element of the country, or one more part of the globe, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may be some photos where a &quotnon-neighborhood&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no thought that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing different shops, shops, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually seeking at the photos about five years later, and becoming stunned by how considerably had changed. Little by tiny, retailer by retailer, day by day, things modify … and when you have been around as extended as I have, it is even much more amazing to go back and appear at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it really like that back then? Seriously, did folks genuinely put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I’ll be seeking at these each-block photos five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, also), I’m going to be carrying out my very best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they have been taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no notion what we’re calling this decade however). Or maybe they will just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years right after 9-11&quot.

Film posters are a trivial example of such a time-distinct image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I will eventually decide that they are worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are yet another apparent example of a time-particular phenomenon and even though I’m definitely not a fashion specialist, I suspected that I’ll be able to look at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we truly wear shirts like that? Did girls truly wear those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and extended in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

An additional instance: I am fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that every person has a single, which certainly wasn’t accurate a decade ago and it seems that absolutely everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious interest riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (amongst other factors, that tends to make it very straightforward for me to photograph them with no their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I can not aid wondering whether this type of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have grow to be so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, a single final point: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each and every day’s photo-stroll. I will be updating it every day, and the most recent element of my each-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be shown in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it every single day to see exactly where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

If you have any ideas about locations that I should certainly go to to get some good images, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your small corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can email me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …
