Private Project

epistrophy

“epistrophy” follows the patterns of pedestrians in New York City, when the streets still teemed with inhabitants. Small balletic dramas play out as people rush from home to work and back. Although the scenes are spontaneous, some of the narratives seem almost as if they were scripted. These true vignettes of urban life are stories of struggle, perseverance and pleasure.
