I was privileged to walk to work daily through the southwest corner of Central Park for 4 years. Photographically, it was a never-ending source of inspiration and remains my most favourite place in the Big Apple. A year after my arrival in New York in 2005 I embarked on a somewhat reluctant conversion from film to digital. I was learning the D70, the bottom-of-the range, 6 MB sensor Nikon, since the D2X, with its twice-larger 12MB sensor was too expensive a risk to take, should digital turn out to not be “my thing”.
The D70’s limitations apart, I was amazed, from the beginning, at the growth that digital offered to me in terms of instant learning feedback, the freedom of a digital darkroom and the opportunities present in the new world of web-based data. My artistic and technical capacity accelerated furiously and my passion for making images finally developed into a core need in my life. The opportunities afforded by New York as a vibrant professional hub, with access to communities, such as the ASMP and the ICP - not forgetting B&H, my favourite store in the whole world - were the icing on the cake.
Given my relative technical innocence at the time, this image of a pedestrian bridge in the park still surprises me by its subtlety and graphic power. I hope you like it too.
