Laurent Dequick

Brooklyn #3

About 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.

The artist
Laurent Dequick

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 Dequick’s purpose is to accurately convey an impression of frenzy which results from a density of population and activity in urban areas: « 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 don’t think so: I don’t want to… »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 inhabitants’ lives. Dequick’s style is reminiscent of cubism in its execution close to abstraction andin his representation of permanent movement.
