PHOTOGRAPH FRIDAY: PRINCE STREET PEOPLE

February 7, 2014

Prince Street People

In light of our recent travels, we thought it only fitting that we brought you a Photograph Friday from the Big Apple.  Let us introduce you to the Prince Street People; the somewhat unexpected inhabitants of Prince Street subway in Soho.    These folk are part of a public art installation comprising of a frieze that runs the entire length of both platforms entitled ‘Carrying On,’ created by Janet Zweig in collaboration with Edward del Rosario.   The frieze consists of 194 silhouettes (taken from photographs of  over 2,000 New Yorkers) and is designed to “celebrate the significance and individuality of New York.”

Janet Zweig elaborates on the frieze on her website here.
