The frenzied pace and conflicting rhythms of Times Square are captured through a dense tapestry of light and space achieved through rigorous optical printing and rich, eye-popping colour overlays.
Overlapping light and space continue
in Tomonari Nishikawa's 45 7 Broadway,
which captures the paralyzing pace and
conflicting rhythms of Times Square. Shot
on black-and-white 16mm through red,
green and blue filters, then optically printed
onto colour film through these same filters,
45 7 Broadway is less jazzy than Mondrian's
Broadway Boogie Woogie but equally eyepopping
in its colour and illusionistic
