Black & White

Gaelle Guse

I took these pictures several years ago during a trip to New York. I remember standing on the top of the Empire State Building, blinded by the sun, in a suffocating heat, surrounded by hundreds of cameras. The challenge was being able to take a picture through the wired fence which circles the outside of the whole building, and above all to see what I was shooting. The city was covered with mist created by the intense heat, and I could hardly see the pictures I was taking. After taking pictures of the skyscrapers below, I spotted a pigeon which seemed peaceful, literally on top of the world. I thought it would be interesting to capture the shot from his point of view, as though sitting beside him.

It is only recently that I found these pictures again and turned them into black & white. I thought the black and white gave them a timeless and somehow nostalgic dimension. The city seems gloomy, overwhelmed by a cloudy sky, but the pigeon looks both observant and powerful.
