About the artwork

The photographer is intimately connected to the great North American cities, and particularly New York, where he resides. Like the photographs of Robert Frank, particularly those of Detroit and New York, Franck Bohbot succeeds in revealing another side to America, through urban scenes and portraits of Americans taken in the course of their daily life. 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. Taken from East River Park on the island of Manhattan, the Domino Sugar Factory is one of the greatest symbols of Brooklyn. It was the biggest sugar refinery in the world at the end of the civil war and employed over 4000 people. Its demolition is underway to make way for luxury apartments.
