New York is a city of doors. All full of mysteries and possibilities, from the
small side door on the kitchen of the musty dumpling place in Chinatown where the
chef comes out to smoke, to a giant white triumphal arch in Washington Square park
where that tourist shoot their photos in front of. Doors are
among the most common objects in our daily lives yet also one of the most
meaningful . They stand as both a barrier against outside wonders , an obstacle, and
as passageways, that facilitate transition. The door reminds of the decision making, the moment of change that we
all face in our daily lives.
Doors are the portals to the different places, the borderlines that differentiate
the space between our current position, and a goal. Thus, going through a door is a
dynamic action of taking a risk. My photographs describe these dividing functions of
the door. I’ve tried to convey the mystery and uncertainty that resides behind the door
with the structure and lighting of the doors.
