“New York” is part of a long-term project, where the photographer deals with transience and how almost everything in life gets lost in time. The pictures capture common streets and areas of New York, where topics as urbanity, identity and speed are definitely present.
You see views of daily street life suspended yet looks active with frames leaving traces of themselves and repetative silhouets. Her work does not only represent urban environments, but also the rushing associated with them, exploring the themes of time and caducity. In these photographs, the viewer is pushed to truly observe a bustling place from one point in space, but several points in time.
The project originated in a trip to New York in November 2014, where Stephanie was exploring the city with all its facets. Walking through the city with no special location in mind, she was fascinated by the energetic atmosphere.
