Large size and premium paper edition.
I made a quick trip to New York City on March 2012 and, as I already went there twice, I decided to discover places I hadn’t seen. Coney Island was THE place I wanted to be. Specially during the low season.
For this series, I decided to go against my usual way of shooting. This is not only street photography in which candidness and spontaneity prevail. I have spent quite a long time thinking about spaces, colors, compositing and processing of theses photographs. It was clear for me that this had to be a project.
I titled this series “Low Season Survivors” because everything around seemed freezed, as if suspended in time. Life seemed to have deserted the place. There remained only those condemned to survive a hypothetical disaster. Condemned and resigned.
I tried to translate this oppressive feeling of suspended time between two seasons.
... And I hope you’ll enjoy the visit...
