There’s something about signage and markets. From all the way back to the Walker Evans documentary days, there’s something to photographing signs to save today for a future audience. To look back on someday when things are no longer the way they are today. This is what drew me to photograph this meat market in New York.
We can’t help but be influenced by the work we’ve previously seen. Whether it’s an homage or simply imitation, it’s still something that draws us photographically so much so that we have to make that photograph.
And so I did.
