The story behind that picture: "A New York Minute"

By: Thorsten Overgaard 

 

A New York minute is an instant. Or as Johnny Carson once said, "it's the interval between a Manhattan traffic light turning green and the guy behind you honking his horn."

In terms of photography you never know what the next moment might have of possibilities, or what you may encounter around the next corner. Here are a few photos form the last days in New York City.

Time Square, New York.


Around the corner I met the 72 year old photographer Louis Mendes. Since the 1970s he has been photographing people in public places with his 1959 Graflex Speed Graphic. Photo: Thorsten Overgaard, Leica M9 with Leica 50mm Summicron-M f/2.0 II.
