Chalk this up to things that can only happen in NYC: my friend Devon and I were walking along, looking for a choice location to take some pictures of my outfit, when we stumbled across an outdoor art display. Several artists were selling their wares in front of an unused storefront. They were ever to kind to let us take pictures and use their works as backdrops.
Devon and I couldn’t help but feel that this was a perfect metaphor for art itself: using another artist’s piece as inspiration and a springboard for another type of art (photography). Looking at these photos is basically recursive art. Inspiration does come from everywhere—and the point of art is to always give back.
Photos thanks to Devon!
