Event Horizon

Visiting Antony Gormley's permanent installation in Crosby had me thinking back to 2010, to his more transient exhibit here in New York, Event Horizon. I first saw one of the statues on top of a building in Union Square and had the all too predictable moment of fear thinking that the iron man was a jumper.

The creepiness factor is increased when you realize you are being watched.

About a week later I headed down to Madison Square Park on a mission to spot as many of the monoliths as possible. They were everywhere.

It was a pretty grey, nondescript kind of a day. The thick cloud cover made for such dead light I opted to shoot in black and white. I like the added sense of desolation and isolation that brings to the figures.
