"Philip-Lorca diCorcia took his camera to public places—in this case, New York City’s bustling Times Square—to capture candid photographs of strangers. He affixed a powerful strobe light to scaffolding and used a radio signal to activate the strobe, releasing the shutter of his camera in time with its flash. In doing so, he captured unwitting pedestrians in a burst of light from more than 20 feet away. Since diCorcia worked in broad daylight, his subjects did not notice the strobe’s flash. The person caught within its light is highlighted in great detail, while the surrounding crowd recedes into the background."
Good - Very Good / Dust jacket has evident shelf wear. Some fraying along the edges and scuffs all over. On the inside of the rear side of the dust jacket there is a spot. This spot does not transfer in to the book. Inside in great condition.
