This is a series of self portraits photographed upon my departure from Times Square at the 42nd Street Subway Station.

I wanted to make a series of self portraits of myself in relationship to this being my first visit to Times Square.

I think I was most struck by my entrance to and exit from Times Square and wanted to convey a series of images that placed me in relationship to other people who were also entering and exiting the physical space of Times Square.

I was also very conscious of wanting to create a "newer" image of Times Square for myself and not the imagined one or the one replicated so many times in print and television. I am very happy with the spontaneous collaboration of all the people passing through this frame created by the Times Square Subway entrance/ exit.
