Street Walkers - New York Street Photography Abstraction

$ 7,500
  • Description
    The history of street photography has been characterized by a loose snapshot style where the central purpose was to capture random moments as they unfold in time. Little emphasis was placed on creating tight, formal compositions. Over the past 54 years, street photographer Mitchell Funk's groundbreaking contribution to the genre was to do street photography with the meticulous compositions and precision lighting that is usually the domain of studio photography. In this work, "Street Walkers", Funk elevates his distinctive style to a perfect artistic statement - where every pictorial element is in perfect harmony. The notion of capturing the " The Decisive Moment " still exists but as defined by Funk. He is an abstractionist while being a documentarian. Thirteen pedestrians form a line that echoes the street and architecture lines. They are rim-lit and leap out against a dark background. Each has their own personality, yet in rigid formation, they retain a mechanical quality that links them to the other non-human utilitarian elements of the picture.

    Signed, numbered 2/15, dated and titled, and lower right recto. Other sizes are available, and the fine art photograph is unframed and printed later. Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art paper
