With these images I continue to explore the photo-gesture, inspired by the Abstract Expressionist concept. Shutter speeds between half a second and 6 seconds enable the gesture. I then further abstract the image by removing color, manipulating the remaining tonal range and printing on metallic paper. The images are my love poems for New York City, where I have lived and changed for 27 years. I arrived as a migrant and will perhaps leave as a ghost. In the meantime I document the process of living by creating evidence of a life. The Chilean director Raúl Ruiz wrote that Truth is unspeakable because it takes time for us to tell it and Time has a habit of making us change our minds. This is why I make photographs.
