MEAT MARKET 1993 (Film excerpts)

While studying film in New York in the early 90's, I shot an experimental thriller which action was set in the Meat Market. An amazing place for photographers and filmmakers with its incredibly cinematic atmosphere and hardcore New York edge.

While this film will certainly not be remembered for its script and plot, it does features footage of the Meat Market before it became the trendy and touristic Meat Packing District with its cleaned up Highline, its exclusive luxury stores and expensive restaurants.
This film was shot on an early morning while the streets were empty and the butcher warehouses closed.
This is what Washington street, Little West 4th and area looked like at the time.
This footage was shot on 16mm Kodak reversal film with a CP16 camera.

The "Different Views " series are an attempt to offer a different photographic perspective of famous New York landmarks. Through a selection of images from the archives, the landmark is shown fully integrated in its urban environment. An alternative to the classic touristic landmark representation.

This postcard was sent to me from NYC by my parents in the summer of 1977 as I was in vacations in the south of France. It is probably part of the many things that made me want to move to New York once I became old enough!
