About a year and a half into living on the East Coast, I’m finally beginning to appreciate the changing of the seasons. The parks of Manhattan, especially the High Line and Central Park, dramatically demonstrate these changes. I began taking these photographs of the High Line at the end of Winter, with the intention of capturing the transformation from Winter to Spring. What a difference 2.5 months can make! The first photograph in each series shows the park with all of the growth that survived the cold. The second shows the park immediately after the Spring Cutback, a massive coordinated effort to trim back overgrowth in preparation for new growth in the Spring. The third shows the park at the height of Spring, with lush greenery that seems to have sprouted overnight. Click here to view in large.
