A Peaceful City


City is placelessness, its one way of creating places being despite itself. Constantly optimized for shipping of goods and people, dedicated zoning, passage and property regulation, cities are measured in units and directions of movement. Dead ends are an oddity, something to be eventually reworked — but until then they are possible places, like the slow spots in the river flow, leaving a space to breathe. Few and far, these spots compose a separate city, reclaimed, peaceful.

A Peaceful City was shot in a multitude of locations in and around New York, at dusk and mostly in clear skies.
