‘New York, New York, New York, New York’

My dear friend Hiro Ito has a brilliant photo slideshow on the New York Times’ Lens blog today, called “New York, New York, New York, New York.”

It’s a series of 17 grids, drawn from the gigantic archive of black-and-white street photography — like tens of thousands of images — that Hiro has built up over the years. (He takes other kinds of pictures, too, including arts performances for the Times.)

Here’s one image that is part of slide #10 (I am flattered to report that yours truly makes a cameo in that slide as well):


You can see another Times slideshow of Hiro’s work here, and read an interview with him here.
