Golden Light on Solitary Figure in Central Park

$ 7,500
  • Description
    Magical golden rays rim light a single figure sitting on a Central Park Bench. He becomes more of a shape than a specific individual and, as such, blends into the light-infused background. To the man's left is the black shape of a tree trunk that acts as a transition point that allows the photographer to double-expose another image of the same place and time onto the same 35mm frame. The result is an original image that draws the viewer's attention and prompts a double-take. Two images are shot simultaneously and seamlessly juxtaposed so it looks like one. The photographer's adherence to rigorous code light and design in color photography is on full display.
    Signed and dated and numbered lr recto, 3/15, another size available, unframed, printed later, Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art paper.
