Cityscape – Tonight Belongs to PHANTOM
Tonight Belongs to Phantom, NYC 2008
Before moving on from my recent Cityscapes, here’s one more. When in the city to show my work to galleries, I always bring my camera out at night. Unique architecture, lights and iconic scenes can be found in most big cities, but having grown up in New York, it has a special place in my heart.
Having recently celebrated its 25th Anniversary, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera always has a prominent presence amongst the sea of signs in New York City’s Times Square. A few years back, this grand billboard stood sentinel over the heart of Broadway and I shot it from center of the square. With spotlights eerily reflecting over the spooky subject of the show, this night definitely belonged to Phantom.
