“WHAT WE LOOK AT” The Subway Station A Photography Show
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances,” ” As You Like It” Written circa 1599 William Shakespeare
The stage is the Hunter College 68th Street Station. The only props are wooden benches. The actors need no script or costumes; they are perfectly cast as they are. When the next train arrives, the players are whisked away and the new actors descend the stairways to take their place. The actors are the audience, the audience the actors. This is a snippet for people to see, of life in New York City, in our times; for those who live here, or elsewhere, or those who are yet to come. We all share a fundamental curiosity to observe those we do not know, and who live in different places and times. After all, at heart we are all voyeurs.
