Street Photography: Times Square

In addition to my fascination with hair, as described in yesterday’s post, I am also drawn to interesting clothes. This was a very colorful bunch. It was an overcast day, which made the colors pack an extra punch.

These are the sort of photographs that I like to think of as “future history.” Twenty or thirty years from now, these clothes may look even more striking than they do now. I imagine it will prompt the kind of reaction that photographs of the 1980s or 1970s do. They are both familiar yet somewhat alien. Even the look of older photographs – their color, contrast, and other characteristics of the medium – look different.

Who knows what we – or our photographs – will look like in the coming decades? Our hair, clothes, and technology will change. And our experience of today’s photographs will change too.
