in New York
A tribute to a city that stops for nothing, not even the fiercest of blizzards
It is in the wake of a snowy avenue, bathed in a warm nocturnal light, an illuminated Chrysler Building just visible in the distance, where Flash Back in New York gets its bearings. Its composition pays perfect tribute to this city that stops for nothing, even the fiercest of blizzards. New York is like fire under ice, and demands a composition fitting its excessiveness, its astonishing possibilities.
