Brooklyn #2Sobre esta fotografía
Esta fotografía representa el puente suspendido de Brooklyn. Con aproximadamente dos kilómetros de longitud, este puente cruza el East River y conecta a Manhattan con Brooklyn. Dequick procesa su tema con una doble exposición. La acumulación de fotografías que colinda con el congestionamiento hace confusos los códigos de la representación y vira hacia la abstracción.

This 40 year old photographer is an architect by profession. There are signs of this in his work as it is first of all a reflection on contemporary cities and more specifically aboutthe proliferation of modern urban space. Laurent Dequickâ€™s purpose is to accurately convey an impression of frenzy which results from a density of population and activity in urban areas: Â« Along the streets, the lights, the noise, the traffic, the swarms of pedestrians, the blend of smells, are so fascinating that no single shot can entirely capture it. Do choices have to be made? I donâ€™t think so: I donâ€™t want toâ€¦ Â»To translate this urban life congestion into an image, the photographer does not shy away from the juxtaposition, superposition or inlaying of shots. With the same intensity he overlaps photographs representing architectural complexes, main traffic routes and people. He condenses the images like the city condenses the sum of its inhabitantsâ€™ lives. Dequickâ€™s style is reminiscent of cubism in its execution close to abstraction andin his representation of permanent movement.
