Autumn light. Central Park, New York City

It’s in the way the sunlight streams through the last vestiges of autumn: as golden as the leaves that hold onto their branches.

It’s in the way the earth bares itself under this fanfare: as vulnerable as new lover’s heartbeats buried under layers of clothing.

Winter’s prelude starts slowly: a distant refrain that works its way through the earth chilled in anticipation.

We slow-dance on this mortal coil to the adagio of life twisting and turning with the whims of the winds that scatter our spirit to the ends of the earth.

It’s all we can do.

New York City Skyscrapers. Midtown.

They rise: stalagmites borne from an earth bursting at the seams with lofty aspirations.

And the city’s streets weave their way through them: well-worn crevices on the surface of dreams.

This is one of my favorite views of the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. It’s a view from the top of the Empire State Building. I have always loved the variety of architecture and intensely dense feel of this patch of the New York City skyline.

Art:Seen - Vivienne Gucwa, Part 2

Me! Walking around the Lower East Side and Chinatown, talking about the neighborhoods and photography!

In the middle of this past summer, I filmed two different segments for a documentary series called Art: Seen which was directed and produced by Madhouse Muse. This is the second segment of that series:

Art Seen: Vivienne Gucwa, Part 2

.

In this segment, we walked around some streets I love on the Lower East Side and in Chinatown and I talked briefly about the history of the streets and why I enjoy taking photos of these particular streets. The streets that are explored in the video are: Rivington Street (between Ludlow Street and Essex Street), Ludlow Street, Orchard Street, Doyers Street, Pell Street.

As I explained when I shared the first video segment, I really am not used to seeing myself on video and it’s even stranger now since it feels like this was filmed ages ago! While I think I look different now, it’s fun to see this now since this past summer was a huge turning point for me in many ways (details about that in the future!).

I hope everyone enjoys this! If anything, it’s a fun look at what I am surrounded by on a daily basis and towards the end I even talk a little bit about why I love mobile photography and how I feel about the process of taking photos with my phone.

The first part of the documentary series is here:

Under Future Skies. New York City

Old metropolises stood partially intact - lit with a colorful glow that emanated from crowded skies: remains from a future that soared past the earth.

The skies were dark with the exhaust of sky-borne vehicles and burned out stars: remains from a present littered behind the future.

And under the left-over sky-rubble, old architecture rose from the ground stubbornly: remains from a past left behind long ago.

This is an ongoing side project: surreal future-dystopian (and utopian) cityscapes incorporating recognizable architecture and landscapes: part of a larger series that I am imagining that takes place in the future.
