“It was my intention when I moved to DUMBO, with a perfect view of the Twin Towers to make that my subject while we lived there. Unfortunately, two weeks after moving, the Towers disappeared, before my eyes. My concentration for the next six years became the Brooklyn Bridge, day and night, in all weather conditions. My camera on a tripod was set at the window, framing the bridge in relatively the same position, over the years.”
