Excellent! I like this kind of documenting unintended art. Thanks to your pictures an average piece of clutter becomes a sculpture.
Thanks Karl, that’s exactly how I feel. The funny thing is that less than 100 yards away was the Hudson River. Downstream, there was a very expansive view that didn’t make for a strong photograph at this time of day. (And given the fact that several other photographers in the area specialize in scenic vistas — and do great work — there’s no need for me to reinvent that wheel.) I’m much more interested in images that evoke questions or help one to see things in a different light, not to confirm something you already know.
Another amusing aspect is that directly across the river from where I was standing is Dia:Beacon, a museum of large-scale contemporary artwork whose interior spaces are truly breathtaking in their size and flood of natural light. The ripped screen and fence I photographed would have been right at home in the museum — and more interesting than much of the pretentious crap that is regularly displayed there :)
Hahaha! This story behind your pictures is very revealing. A location surrounded by art sights seams to be full of aesthetic energy though garbage is presenting itself like art too ;-)
