Christopher Wool: East Broadway breakdown

A very dark view on the surroundings of the broadway away from the glittering world of musicals and more.

Not very pretty and maybe not very artistic but having it as a document of time and place I think it works well when looking at it not just picture by picture but at them in whole.

Not a scientific way to describe the situation in N.Y…..not really my cup of tea but when looking at earlier photographers you see that many of them have a stronger side of documentary than photography and of course are there those that combine it beautifully like Cartier-Bresson, Strömholm and more,
