ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH
The first thing that catches your eye is the big arch in this photo by Jack Delano, this architectural detail is not very common in American cities, and is more easily found in Europe. The whole thing forms a 'frame within a frame', and places us as a spectator behind a character who also seems to be observing the scene, and the photographer's composition creates a very theatrical effect and an interesting mise en abyme.
The second fascinating effect of this photograph is its ability to become more and more complex as we approach it. From a distance the scene is banal, but as you get closer, the two female characters stand out and then traffic, buildings and coloured signs blend together.
The scene becomes cinematic and we are interested in the story of this man who waits and watches the cars and people go by.
The evening light contributes to give relief to this scene and pushed me to colorize it by emphasising warm tones on the areas touched by the sun. The rest of the scene, darker where the cars and signs are mixed, is already almost dusk, the colours more violent and saturated. – Sébastien de Oliveira
