A New York Moment: Lynn Saville

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

Photographer Lynn Saville shoots at twilight in New York, as the light changes and evening descends on the city. 

She also shoots places that are in transition: photographing neighborhoods like the meatpacking district and DUMBO, that still show traces of their gritty pasts, even as they've become thoroughly gentrified.

Her advice to photographers: "Find a place which gives you a strong gut feeling and allow your intuition to guide you to make a photograph which conveys that feeling.  And take your lens cap off."

We're exploring New York scenes as captured by NYC photographers.  That means you.
