New York Taxis, Corner of 23rd and 6th, 1999 - William Furniss Photography

New York Taxis, Corner of 23rd and 6th, 1999

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 Taxi may be the most iconic vehicle in the World, you may not love the experience of riding in one but they carry us to many wonderful experiences. I first became interested in the freedom of choice inherent in taxis watching the Tom Hanks movie Splash, he uses one to drive 300 miles to Cape Cod on a whim. In my image I stay still and a stream of taxis pass by for me to photograph.

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.
