Stephen Wilkes 1036pce Puzzle - Flatiron, New York



The Flatiron building has been called one of the world’s most iconic skyscrapers. It has always been one of my favourite buildings. I love the compositional divide the building creates in this photograph. Like the bow of a great ship, the Flatiron mirrors itself, each side shares a different avenue of the city. To create this image, I photographed from a 170-foot crane floating directly over Fifth Avenue. Broadway is seen as “day,” and Fifth Avenue is photographed at “night”. This photograph was created on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2010. As twilight came over the city, the 9/11 Memorial lights began to rise at the end of Fifth Avenue. It’s an image about hope and memory. New Yorkers continue to move forward, yet never forget. ~ Stephen Wilkes
