Poet’s Walk, Central Park in 1994. Shot with a large-format view camera during a freezing rain. This remains the most popular print I sell. Frankly, I almost didn’t take this photograph because it was so cold and the film holders were getting wet. Just as I was about to pack up, the couple entered the scene, and I just waited until they were in the distance to try to give the looming trees some scale.
A few years ago, the glistening stones were dug up and replaced by dirt. You think that everything will still be there – but as an ancient philosopher said, you can’t step in the same river twice. This image really need to be seen large to get the full effect.
