"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."
