  • New York, Visual Chaos

To convey his reaction to the visual cacophony of the city, and very often its decrepit looks, JS Cartier used the 35mm format in black & white, very often with a 200mm telephoto lens to achieve a concentration of information.

In these images, Cartier illustrates his forty-year long love-hate relationship with New York City, the town in whose streets one feels the most "outside" in the world, according to philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre.
