This set of pictures is based on a very basic principle: stroll every block of Manhattan with a video camera, and see what occurs. To avoid missing vanything, walk both sides of the street.
That’s all there is to it …
Of course, if you desired to be more ambitious, you might also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s more than I’m willing to dedicate to at this point, and I’ll leave the staying districts of New York City to other, more adventurous professional photographers.
Oh, actually, there’s one more small detail: leave the pictures alone for a month– unedited, unblemished, and unviewed. By the time I actually focus on the first of these “” every-block” pictures, I will have taken more than 8,000 images on the neighboring streets of the Upper West Side– plus another a number of thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the different areas in New York City where I traditionally take photos. So I do not anticipate to be emotionally connected to any of the “” every-block” pictures, and hope that I’ll be able to make an unbiased choice of the ones worth looking at.
When it comes to the requirements that I’ve used to pick the little subset of every-block pictures that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I’ll submit any picture that I believe is “” excellent,” “and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, “” I have no idea when or where that picture was taken, but it’s actually an excellent photo!””
. A 2nd requirement involves place, and the 3rd involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some pictures that plainly say, “” This is New york city!” “to anyone who takes a look at it. Clearly, particular landscape icons like the Empire State Structure or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion; but I’m hoping that I’ll discover other, more unforeseen examples. I hope that I’ll have the ability to take some shots that will make a “” local” viewer state, “” Well, even if that’s not identifiable to somebody from another part of the country, or another part of the world, I know that that’s New york city!” “And there may be some images where a “” non-local” viewer might state, “” I had no concept that there was anyplace in New york city City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/ spectacular.””
. As for the sense of time: I keep in mind roaming around my community in 2005, photographing numerous shops, stores, restaurants, and organisation establishments– and after that casually looking at the photos about 5 years later, and being stunned by just how much had changed. Gradually, shop by shop, day by day, things change … and when you’ve been around as long as I have, it’s a lot more remarkable to return and look at the images you took thirty or forty years back, and ask yourself, “” Was it truly like that at that time? Seriously, did individuals really wear bell-bottom jeans?””
. So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every-block pictures 5 or 10 years from now (and maybe you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my finest to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or a minimum of at some point in the years of the 2010’s (I have no concept exactly what we’re calling this decade yet). Or perhaps they’ll just state to us, “” This is exactly what it was like a dozen years after 9-11″”
. Film posters are an insignificant example of such a time-specific image; I’ve already taken a lot, and I do not know if I’ll eventually choose that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are another apparent example of a time-specific phenomenon; as well as though I’m definitely not a style professional, I suspected that I’ll have the ability to take a look at some images 10 years from now and mutter to myself, “” Did we actually wear shirts like that? Did ladies truly use those weird skirts that are short in the front, and long in the back? Did everyone in New york city have a tattoo?””
. Another example: I’m interested by the interactions that people have with their cellular phones out on the street. It appears that everybody has one, which definitely wasn’t real a decade back; and it appears that everyone strolls down the street with their eyes and their whole conscious attention riveted on this little box-like gizmo, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (to name a few things, that makes it very simple for me to photograph them without their even noticing, particularly if they have actually likewise got earphones so they can pay attention to music or bring on a telephone call). However I can’t help wondering whether this sort of social habits will seem bizarre a years from now … specifically if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they’re included into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.
Oh, one last thing: I’ve created a personalized Google Map to show the precise information of every day’s photo-walk. I’ll be upgrading it each day, and the most recent part of my every-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all the older sections of the journey, which will be displayed in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it each day to see where I have actually been, by clicking this link.

If you have any tips about locations that I must certainly visit to obtain some excellent pictures, or if you ‘d like me to photo you in your little corner of New York City, please let me understand. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can email me straight at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com.
Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …
