STEPHEN F SHERMAN: THE HIGH LINE
in scopio Magazine, Aboveground: city
The High Line Project began in 2006 and grew out of my familiarity with the Promenade Plante in Paris, where the same idea was put into being and was finished in 2000. I started photographing the project before construction began, and have been photographing it since then. What had once been an area of quiet isolation and a certain feral splendor, has been reborn in a neighborhood that has undergone remarkably rapid transformation, even by New York standards.
These ten pictures give a sense of past, present and future of this project, and this area of New York City.
The photographs are all high resolution digital (approx. 275 MB) and taken between 2006 and 2010. Existing prints are archival pigment ink.
