NYC City & Immigrants
"With his heroic-sized bronze figural group in Battery Park,
sculptor Luis Sanguino celebrates the diversity of New York City and the struggle of immigrants.
The sculpture depicts figures of various ethnic groups and eras,
including an Eastern European Jew, a freed African slave and a worker.
The figures’ expressive poses emphasize the struggle and toil
inherent in the experience of the immigrant or dislocated person."
Now, in 2012, I went to the NYC in order to capture the traces of that history
being reflected in the series of street snapshots captured in the modern Manhattan.
Remember: Jew, Afro-american, and a worker.
Thanks for watching.
