The Gates, Central Park, NYC 2005

Christo and Jeanne-Claude developed the concept for The Gates in 1979; in 2003, NYC granted permission to the artists to realize their vision; in 2005, seven thousand curtained gates straddling every footpath of the park for two weeks. On the weekend before they were to be taken down and recycled, a snow fell, giving me the perfect backdrop to shoot this exhibit. A great day of shooting on 35mm film.
