Franck Bohbot Studio

LONG ISLAND CITY QUEENS

About this photograph

This photograph comes from the "Light On" series produced between 2013 and 2014 in New York. The artist captured the lights and colours that illuminate the nocturnal cityscape of the city that never sleeps, thanks to the lighting from the myriad storefronts of delis and restaurants. While they continue with their activities, they gradually become devoid of people as the night goes on, thus giving way to a "second life", a calmer and more laidback atmosphere. Like the photographs of Robert Frank, particularly those of Detroit and New York, Franck Bohbot succeeds in revealing another side to America. His various views, each taken with a long exposure time, give a highly contrasted and dynamic effect to the compositions, which highlight the various kinds of architecture he encounters. They also confer a deliberately cinematographic character to his shots, bearing witness to the photographer's fascination for architecture and its importance in films. He readily cites Nan Goldin, calling her photographs the "remains of non-existent films".
