Soy Sauce Factory March 13th – April 6th 2015
Starting in early 1980’s I had a goal to shoot one roll of black and white film every day,
sometimes I succeeded, often not.
After 20 years I had a collection of thousands of rolls of film and for each roll a contact
sheet was created, these contact sheets represented my photographic life, it was my diary.
For this installation I wanted to recreate that feeling of being in the darkroom looking
over contact sheets.
By scanning selected contact sheets and selecting certain images and then creating these three
blown up contact sheets I am presenting a photographic diary of my life in New York’s downtown from
early 1980’s until late 1990’s.
We were in love with the city and with the feeling that anything is possible and anything goes. This is my
love story and tribute to that time and to New York City.
