Statue of Liberty New York Harbor at Sunset with Green Light

$ 6,500
  • Description
    A vibrant orange sunset silhouettes the iconic Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor. In the foreground, a partly out-of-focus green street light occupies the top half of the composition. In 1972, the use of a green street light in this way was a pioneering compositional device. It was as inventive as it was radical and pushed away from traditional color photography at the time. It underscores the push-pull concept of close-up and far-away. Finally, the image possesses two light sources - one by man and the other by nature - one with a warm color and the other with a cool color.

    Signed and dated on the lower right and numbered lower right, 3/15 Printed later, other sizes available, unframed - Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art paper.
