one day last week, i was still on vacation but back in NY, and i had the day to wander around. having a free weekday in the city feels like a treat to me. i visited a few favorite shops and had a leisurely lunch. and then i spent some time browsing in another favorite, dashwood books. it is an independent bookstore devoted entirely to photography, and it carries the most interesting stuff. the photos i’m sharing above are from a book i picked up, ‘almost’ by photographer christina hejtmanek.
i keep coming back to the abstract photographs in this small book – they look like images from a dream, don’t they? these are fleeting moments, seemingly captured as hejtmanek cruised down a highway shooting photos through the passenger side window. perhaps she was standing still when she took these, but i like to think that some of these were captured enroute. the colors are soft and muted, and i really like her use of light and her photos of the sky.
when looking through her images, i’m reminded of this photo i shot last year. i also see echoes of photos from flickr friends — this one from mav, this one from molly, and this one from shari. i thought you all might appreciate hejtmanek’s work as much as i do.
cheers to wednesday!
