    A water main break in Bushwick, Brooklyn, 1978.

    A water main break in Bushwick, Brooklyn, 1978.

    July 28, 1978: A water main break in Bushwick, Brooklyn, rendered Decatur Street “a scene of contrasts.” A 48-inch pipe had burst at about 4:25 a.m., sending millions of gallons into the street, “shot up through the asphalt like a geyser.” Children played while residents fretted about the damage — and the delayed response. read more

    Kevin Cooley’s Controlled Burns

    Kevin Cooley’s Controlled Burns

     

     

    We are really enjoying Kevin Cooley’s recent Controlled Burns photo series. In Controlled Burns, swirling and imposing clouds of smoke contend with one another in a physical battle between diametrically opposing explosions of black and white. From a structuralist point of view, this imagery serves as metaphor for binary opposition, e.g. good vs. evil or day vs. night, yet this is not the sole line of inquiry. Inspired by the smoke signals of the recent Papal conclave which uses smoke as form of basic communication.

    Redux Pictures represents Kevin, an independent commercial and editorial photo agency based in New York City who we had the pleasure of working with. read more
