An interactive photo essay on sprinklers, standpipes and combination Siamese connections by Guido Jiménez-Cruz.
"Gargoyles of New York" is a document, an observation, and if you slow down to really look at the photographs, possibly a meditation. Close to 90 minutes of street sounds, recorded where the photos were taken, include snippets of conversations, cars, subways, construction, sirens... Manhattan's constant rumble. These well-grounded Gargoyles keep changing, day and night. They are symmetrical, anthropomorphic, and like us, hard to find two alike.
Ratings and Reviews
These standpipes and sprinklers are the kind of thing I always notice when walking down the street. So cool to see them photographed so beautifully - makes them come to life, each with their own personality! The sounds that accompany them are a great touch.
And such fun with the sounds and voices around them. Don’t forget to look at them both in the daytime and at night. Another creative achievement!
Gargoyles of New York
Very creative! High quality photography and recordings of ambient city sounds. A great reminder that we often overlook artistic aspects of everyday life in the city.
