this is just to say

"...And then there are the passengers. Though the trains are always moving (while I photograph) I feel inextricably linked to the individuals inside. Each individual is alone but with me, connected, if only for an instant. Yet in this moment and in the sum of all these moments there is a seed of something larger and impossibly tangible. This is just to say: 'we.'"
-Ethan Levitas, Untitled/This is Just To Say

Eminent Domain, an exhibit currently on display at the breathtaking New York Public Library features the work of five New York-based photographers examining the fragility &  flux of New York's public spaces. Ethan Levitas' This is Just to Say series is titled after an imagist poem by William Carlos Williams. Aaah, art inspired by words.
