Brooklyn #2About this photograph
This photograph by Dequick represents the Brooklyn Bridge and the bank alongside Manhattan. The famous suspended bridge features at the centre of the representation which cleanly splits the photograph into two parts. The lower section is dedicated to the representation of Pier 17, a pedestrian zone where the former port of New York was located. The upper part of the photograph is dedicated to the tops of numerous Manhattan skyscrapers. The profusion of architectural elements makes it difficult to interpret. Therefore the gaps between the high towers appear to be in negative and leave a squared framework in the background. Equally, the cables of the suspended bridge go off in scattered directions out of sight. This abundance serves a purpose for the artist who wishes render New York?s frenzied agitation.Read more Read less
