BACK IN NEW YORK 1990's-2020 PART 1 "Then and Now" Updated


August 2019


During the past 25 years, I had several occasions to come back to NY and to witness the tremendous changes the city has been undergoing. This summer 2019, I thought time had come to explore Manhattan again with a camera, wandering aimlessly in this transformed city, from Harlem to Battery Park, East to West End. My Nikon film cameras have been stored for quite some time and my new companions are now Fujifilm digital cameras. These long walks in the NYC summer heat brought me back to some locations I had photographed in the 1990's. This first post is presenting a few "then and now" shots using images from my photo archive.
