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

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

That is all there is to it …

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

Oh, actually, there is a single much more modest detail: leave the images alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I truly focus on the first of these &quotevery-block&quot images, I will have taken more than eight,000 pictures on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus an additional several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC exactly where I traditionally take photos. So I never anticipate to be emotionally attached to any of the &quotevery-block&quot pictures, and hope that I will be able to make an objective choice of the ones worth seeking at.

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

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third requires time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some photographs that clearly say, &quotThis is New York!&quot to any person who appears at it. Clearly, specific landscape icons like the Empire State Constructing or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion but I’m hoping that I’ll find other, more unexpected examples. I hope that I will be in a position to take some shots that will make a &quotlocal&quot viewer say, &quotWell, even if that is not recognizable to an individual from another portion of the country, or an additional element of the globe, I know that that’s New York!&quot And there may possibly be some photos where a &quotnon-regional&quot viewer might say, &quotI had no notion that there was anyplace in New York City that was so fascinating/lovely/ugly/spectacular.&quot

As for the sense of time: I keep in mind wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing a variety of shops, retailers, restaurants, and organization establishments — and then casually searching at the photographs about 5 years later, and getting stunned by how considerably had changed. Tiny by small, shop by store, day by day, issues change … and when you have been about as long as I have, it is even more incredible to go back and look at the pictures you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, &quotWas it actually like that back then? Seriously, did people really put on bell-bottom jeans?&quot

So, with the expectation that I will be searching at these each and every-block photographs 5 or ten years from now (and perhaps you will be, also), I am going to be carrying out my very best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no idea what we’re calling this decade but). Or possibly they’ll just say to us, &quotThis is what it was like a dozen years following 9-11&quot.

Movie posters are a trivial example of such a time-particular image I’ve already taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I’ll ultimately determine that they’re worth uploading. Women’s style/types are an additional obvious example of a time-certain phenomenon and even though I am absolutely not a style expert, I suspected that I’ll be able to look at some pictures ten years from now and mutter to myself, &quotDid we really wear shirts like that? Did women genuinely wear those weird skirts that are brief in the front, and extended in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?&quot

Yet another example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that individuals have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everybody has one, which surely wasn’t true a decade ago and it seems that absolutely everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious focus riveted on this small box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that may possibly be going on (amongst other things, that tends to make it quite easy for me to photograph them with out their even noticing, specifically if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a telephone conversation). But I cannot support asking yourself no matter whether this kind of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … particularly if our cellphones have turn into so miniaturized that they are incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted straight into our eyeballs.

Oh, one particular last thing: I’ve designed a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each day’s photo-stroll. I’ll be updating it every day, and the most current portion of my each and every-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 suggestions about places that I need to definitely check out to get some very good photos, 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 e mail me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

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