Peter Spaans: New York from the Yards


New York From the Yards documents a two-year escapade, from 1982 to 1984, along the railways of the American megalopolis. The Dutch photographer Peter Spaans invites the viewer to discover his wide-angle vision of some of the five boroughs’ most characteristic architecture. “At the time,” writes Spaans, “I was trying to photograph the city with a certain distance. When you’re walking down the streets of New York, you’re either extremely close to your subject, or you’re shooting from a weird angle, pointed up at the skyscrapers. You simply cannot shoot them from the street. Maybe for some of the details, but not if you want to see one in its entirety.”
