Times Square is a place most people who live in New York avoid at all times. As someone who is attracted to extremes, I wanted to explore intimacy and stillness in one of the busiest and most aggressive places in the city. Chris, Alex, and I spent some time hanging out in this weird valley of advertisements, Elmos, and Hulks.
When I walked off the 2 train and through the main pedestrian plaza of Time Square to meet Chris and Alex I was nervous. There was a hissing spiderman running around me and hoards of people taking selfies. I felt like an alien in my own city. However, I’d absolutely do a session here again. It’s an improvisational dance to photograph in Time Square and though overwhelming at first, it can be quite fun.
