One day in 1977 I was walking past the World Trade Center, and I walked up to the base of the thing and took a photo of it straight on, eye level on the street. The resulting print was a sharp photograph of a specific thing that told you absolutely nothing about the thing itself, which was both bigger and more symbolic than could be photographed. My kind of photograph. I shot hundreds more of this style photograph of corporate headquarters and other New York landmarks, and here’s a bunch of them.
