Documenting the past quarter century on the streets of New York City, this collection uses various technical processes to highlight the distinctive vibe of urban living. Divided into five chapters - Panoramas, Grids, Portraits, Multi-Exposures and Diptychs - each technique offers a new way of looking at life in the city. By applying the rigors of experimentation to the uncertainties and chance encounters of the street, Spano's images make strange incidents out of commonplace moments, revealing the odd nature of the daily world. With 77 duotone photos.
