Beautiful Photos Depict Quiet Moments Throughout New York

Beautiful Photos Depict Quiet Moments Throughout New York | Vloasis awesome sauce | Scoop.it

No matter where you look, the streets of New York City are almost always filled with hundreds and thousands of people. But, in the 1960's, American photographer Duane Michals found the rare and quiet moments along back alleys, inside offices and shops, and riding in a subway car, where not a single person was in sight. The series, titled Empty New York, was inspired by the work of Eugene Atget, a brilliant photographer who led the way for documentary photography in Paris.
To create his series, Michals walked along the urban streets during very early Sunday morning hours when most of the city was still asleep. The absence of people in the photographs is as powerful as an image jammed packed with a crowd. Through his camera lens, Michals found the peaceful calm of the city and produced interesting narratives that redefine New York for viewers.

Decoding The Food And Drink On A Day Of The Dead Altar

Giselle Figueroa's curator insight, October 31, 10:52 PM

This is a beautiful tradition. I do not celebrate it because I am not Mexican but every year I saw on TV how Mexican prepare for this day. I consider this as a beautiful and colorful tradition, but also a little weird by the fact that everything they do is to make a dead person happy. The only things that I really like about "El Dia De Los Muertos" is all the colors they use on the "Papel picado" and also the meaning of this delicately  tissue paper which means the wind and the fragility of life. Also the "tamales" which are made from corn-based dough and filled with any kind of meat or vegetables and with a green spacy sauce, I had try them and they are very good. I will love to go one day to Mexico to see the real "Dia de muertos".
