Throughout the month of August I’m posting “Gone,” images from the joe’s nyc archives featuring memorable New York City sights, people, and events that are no longer with us.
without the photographs, we would not realize how much goes away, because it disappears slowly, one place after the other; because our memory does not seem to record anything properly when it comes to those places and objects that we see on a daily basis. probably that our interests are too self-centered, and that the world is taken for granted. photography becomes then an act of remembrance, deliberate or tacit or denied even : i always enjoy photographs of “meaningless” places, for they are meaningless in appearance only, for they are a creation of ours, and to a great extend reflect ourselves as a society. and yet constant change also reflects that.
