New York City offers so much to arouse the senses. Often we may find ourselves immersed in a dynamic visual cacophony of people, colors and shapes. On Fifth Avenue, the transformation of the storefront display windows in preparation for the holiday shopping season is a prime example of that visual cacophony. In making these photographs, I pointed my camera at the seasonal window displays with the intention of documenting the interesting juxtaposition of energetic people and window mannequins in the annual shopping ritual. In doing so, I found not only what I sought, but also an added bonus for me.... a bit of humor.
