Twenty-First Century Times Square: The Ever Changing Heart of New York City

This series of photos taken in Times Square in 2013 explores the many ways that Times Square has changed in the first decades of the twenty-first century.

All images were created with a Hasselblad film camera and Kodak color films. Minimal digital post-processing was performed to preserve the original look and feel of the film negatives. Print sizes range from 12×12 inches to 24×24 inches.
