Stable, New York City, New York, 2010

This wreathed horse’s head decorates the façade of what once was George S. Bowdoin’s early 20th century private stable in mid-town Manhattan. Today, this one-time Dutch revival carriage house is a multi-cultural center for Spanish and American art. I shifted my vantage point here to frame a long vine on its diagonal path across the frame, its green leaves echoing the circle of stone leaves around the horse’s head. The resulting contrast between leaves of stone and real leaves energizes the image.
