'Share' is an ongoing, long-term photo documentation that began in 2013 and focuses on the more uneventful and mundane moments that define the regular working days in New York‘s Financial District. The project‘s motivation is to investigate the complex relationship between abstract global trading and concrete local impact and to build up an extensive, alternative body of imagery for a neighborhood that is rapidly changing.

For this project I am parting with my process of photographing material arrangements in my studio, and am instead taking on the role of the flaneur to experience and record the wealth of ready-made structures that the Financial District has to offer.

'Share' has been supported with a grant from the Puffin Foundation, NJ, and currently consists of more than 17,000 photographs.
