I discovered that New York is not what I thought it was, a Contemporary Cosmopolis with a post-contemporary aesthetics: grey but shiny, with sparkling and dazzling streets.

I saw a Modern city instead, with more 19th than 21th century in it, quite decaying and musty and somehow rotten.

Grey? NYC is grey, indeed.

This made me decide to shoot some Red Scale films, to obtain images returning this mood .
Easy to understand why Coney Island is a big part of this reportage.
