THE NEW YORK MINUTE by CHUT JANTHACHOTIBUTR
The New York Minute is a photographic exhibition of subjects living their everyday lives in New York City by Chut Janthachotibutr. New York City is a fast-paced city, where its inhabitants - the New Yorkers, literally move at the speed of light. This particular exhibition by the photographer showcases a series of photographs that captured New Yorkers at their utmost solitary moments.
“....What intrigue me about photography is the ability to capture the “Moment”. The Moment when, I feelconnected with my surroundings. The “Moment” when my concentration is being focused entirely on my subjects. The “Moment” where there is an absolute clarity in composition, colors, and meaning. The “Moment” where all life comes to a complete stop and turns itself into visual poetry. These are the “Moments” that I live for. Living in New York City does not only amplify these “Moments” but also encourages me to seek out more of them to be collected into my visual memories....”
New York City, 2014
