Manhattan Bridge

Compressed Manhattan Bridge

Manhattan Bridge

New York City. A friend gave us access to the roof of a six story building in Little Italy and even though we weren’t much higher than the surrounding area, the views were still fantastic. The Manhattan Bridge connects lower Manhattan and Brooklyn and from this angle with this telephoto lens the depth of this view is compressed. That compression, flattening, or shortening of the depth is analogous to what a bridge like this does connecting the different worlds of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
