Kramer O’Neill’s Same Time Every Day opens tomorrow night (Thursday 18th November 2010) at the Atlantic Ave. – Pacific Street subway station in Brooklyn NY and will be installed for a year.
The work – the fifth of Design Trust for Public Space’s long-term five-photographer Photo Urbanism Fellowship program - showcases images shot in five locations around New York City over the course of two years.
Kramer had this to say about the project:
“I photographed at each location at the same time of day and time of year. Location one, for example, was one corner in Midtown Manhattan, photographed over three winter months, always between 1:30 and 2pm. While that location was the “tightest” – every picture was taken within the same one square meter of sidewalk – the same concept applied to subsequent places: one beach at Rockaway between 5:30 and 6pm in summer, one stretch of Metropolitan Avenue between 6:30 and 7pm in summer, the Roosevelt Avenue MTA station from 8-9am in winter, and the southernmost tip of Manhattan evenings in spring.”
Excerpts from the project are going on display at the Atlantic Avenue/Pacific Street MTA station in downtown Brooklyn, blown up gigantic-style in lightboxes, with a wider set of the pictures being distributed in tabloid newspaper form at the station on opening day.
You can see the work by entering the subway station and following the signs toward the B/Q platform. The exhibit will be on your left in a series of lightboxes, opposite the LIRR 5/6 tracks.
