The city that emerges from Matthew Pillsbury's photographs of New York - collected in a new book, "City Stages," to be published by Aperture in October - is a ghost town: not an empty ghost town of deserted streets, but a much more literal phantom world in which human figures are captured, in almost spectral fashion, walking through public spaces, their bodies blurred by long exposures. "A lot of photography is about asserting a presence," said Mr. Pillsbury, 39, who was raised in Paris but moved to New York City in the early 1990s. "These photographs are more about the evanescence of our lives and show human beings as fleeting essences that are moving through a landscape."--Alan Feuer"The New York Times Online" (08/30/2013)
