all photos taken by Syed IEDEI.
Today I had some time to kill while waiting for an annual NYS car inspection for the TT, so i walked over to a bookstore and saw a book of B&W photographs by Tseng Kwong Chi and was struck by their coolness. These photos were taken in the 1980s and published in a series known as East Meets West.
To me, he comes across like a futuristic asian tourist-slash-government official investigator! brilliant.
Firstly, i detest taking the NYC subway. Having said that, I will concede that it is the most efficient way to get around NYC, as well as the cheapest. But it is dirty, too congested, unpredictable, chaotic, and most of all a deposition of individuals into mass movement. I am not compatible with mass movements or mini-migrations of sorts. I will assume that either you think I am (A) looking down upon commuters or (B) am an elitist. The first is definitely not true, and the second is up for debate.
I did, however, enjoy these photographs by Daniel Zvereff taken in the subway.
Well I have to say I am entirely intrigued by these “Secret Spot” pics posted over at Type-01. If this is a single location; what kind of a location will have the combination of cars seen in this pic? More mysteriously—–what are those two Bugatti concepts doing there!?!? I would think those 2 concepts would be under the ownership of Bugatti/VAG. I don’t recall them ever being produced for private ownership. Hmm.
Beautiful greyscale photos as well.
