So happy this place exists… Republic Brewing Company | Republic, WA
International District | Seattle, WA
Some nice light in Seattle this afternoon… Not really part of my Pike Street project, but street photography none the less.
New York City, NY | November 25, 2013 I met a man who introduced himself as Scott Sutton, on the sidewalk outside the Union Square movie theater on a frigidly cold day in NY. He was panhandling and had a unique sign reading “Give selflessly and you will reap endlessly.” I started talking to him - and at first we spoke about getting over the shame of begging. How hard it was for him to ask people for money, people who were literally looking down on him as they walked by.
I asked him how long he was on the street - “2 years now.” I asked about the shelters where all his clothes were stolen, the jacket he received as a donation, and the shoes he found in the garbage. We started comparing boots, and I told him about the ones I was wearing, combat boots which served me well in Afghanistan.
Then the conversation took a turn to the surreal.
"You were in the Army?" he asked. "No, I’m a photojournalist," I replied.
“Wow, so was I… In another lifetime.” He said.
“I used to work for Getty Images. I used to cover the Balkans… There came a point in my life when everyone I knew died. I lost everyone in my family… My wife, 13 years younger then me, she used to joke that she would die young, and she did of heart disease, 2 years ago… I lost… and I took a leave of absence,” he paused and looked me in the eye, “Well, you know what they say, when it rains it pours, and here I am now. On the street. Begging.”

Prager’s colorful, elaborately staged photographs of crowds, on view at the Corcoran Gallery of Art from Nov. 23, 2013 – March 9, 2013, comprise the artist’s most ambitious project to date.
"A visual shock. For the first time in its history, Libération is published without photographs. In their place: a series of empty frames that create a form of silence; an uncomfortable one. It’s noticeable, information is missing, as if we had become a mute newspaper. [A newspaper] without sound, without this little internal music that accompanies sight."

Photograph by Stephen Wilkes
Stephen Wilkes is not about that single moment, not exactly. He is, rather, a collector of moments, staking out a location until he has hoovered up enough of them to tell the story of a single place. At first, the panoramas in Day to Night can throw you, as if your brain briefly went off-kilter. Is that a storm closing in fast? Or an eclipse hovering just below the clouds? The reality is altogether more ordinary and yet somehow more striking: day and night—together. These are not the briefest of moments. They are many moments, as many as possible, collapsed and fused into one.
