Fire Escape, N.Y.C. 2016

The contact sheet traditionally was how we delivered our images for client selection when I first started in photography; the thing itself is very attractive to me and allows for many narrative and compositional possibilities, I was a winner of the International Photography Awards Film and Analogue Category in 2019 for this contact sheet body of work.

The New York City fire escape is an iconic device and intriguingly graphic material for photography. This is an entire roll of 120 format film shot with my Hasselblad under the steps of a Broadway Theatre. By winding on the film only partially between exposures I can achieve a continuous narrative across the roll.

This is an archival pigment print on a beautiful baryta paper. Limited edition, signed and numbered on the back of the print. It is shipped in a tube.
