***************

This set of pictures is based on a really straightforward notion: stroll each block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what takes place. To stay away from missing anything, walk each sides of the street.

That is all there is to it …

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

Oh, truly, there is 1 far more modest detail: leave the pictures alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I in fact concentrate on the initial of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken far more than eight,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus yet another many thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC where I traditionally take photos. So I don’t anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot photos, and hope that I’ll be capable to make an objective choice of the ones worth searching at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to choose the tiny subset of each-block photographs that get uploaded to Flickr: there are 3. 1st, I’ll upload any photo that I feel is &quotgreat,&quot and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-pals will be, &quotI have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it really is truly a terrific image!&quot

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third entails time. I’m hoping that I will take some images that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to anybody who appears at it. Certainly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Developing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I am hoping that I will uncover other, more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be able to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to an individual from yet another element of the nation, or one more element of the globe, I know that that is New York!&quot And there may be some pictures where a &quotnon-nearby&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no thought that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering about my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, stores, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually looking at the pictures about five years later, and being stunned by how significantly had changed. Small by small, store by shop, day by day, things change … and when you’ve been around as lengthy as I have, it is even much more incredible to go back and look at the images you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask oneself, &quotWas it really like that back then? Seriously, did people actually wear bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be searching at these each-block photos five or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, too), I am going to be doing 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 concept what we’re calling this decade yet). Or maybe they will just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11&quot.

Movie posters are a trivial example of such a time-particular image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I never know if I will eventually determine that they are worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are another apparent example of a time-specific 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 genuinely put on shirts like that? Did females truly wear those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and extended in the back? Did everybody in New York have a tattoo?&quot

One more example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It appears that everyone has one, which certainly wasn’t correct a decade ago and it seems that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious consideration riveted on this tiny box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (amongst other items, that makes it very simple for me to photograph them with no their even noticing, especially if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I cannot support asking yourself whether or not this type of social behavior will look bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have grow to be so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we put on, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, one particular final factor: I’ve produced a customized Google Map to show the precise specifics of every day’s photo-walk. I’ll be updating it each and every day, and the most recent portion 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 hyperlink

A second criterion has to do with location, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I will take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any individual who looks at it.

As for the sense of time: I don’t forget wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, retailers, restaurants, and company establishments — and then casually searching at the photographs about five years later, and becoming stunned by how a lot had changed. Tiny by little, store by store, day by day, factors modify … and when you’ve been about as lengthy as I have, it is even much more incredible to go back and look at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask your self, &quotWas it genuinely like that back then?

Film posters are a trivial instance of such a time-specific image I’ve currently taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I will eventually choose that they’re worth uploading.
