Everything is a photograph…

“Everything in New York is a photograph.  All the things that are supposed to be dirty or rough or unrefined are the most beautiful things.  Garbage cans at the ends of alleyways look like they’ve been up all night talking with each other.  Doorways with peeling paint look like the wise lines around an old feller’s eyes.” ― Ann Marie MacDonald


This observation of the beautiful and the mundane is captured perfectly by my cousin, Michael.  A new gallery, The Grand Concourse, has been added to the page Michael in the City.  Originally conceived by Louis Aloys Risse, the thoroughfare was declared a historic district and restoration efforts began at the beginning of the new decade.
