We see New York, and sometimes, as Henry James asked us to, we “do it”—explore and conquer it—but what we see when we see it is so far unlike what we experience when we’re doing it that the difference itself can become a subject for art.

这种惊异就是杰出的、被遗忘的(或者说实际上根本就没有被发现的)美国摄影家杰瑞-肖尔作品的一个主题。肖尔参与纽约生活,被纽约所征服,然后为了艺术,可以说在观看和呈现纽约的过程中英勇献身。在生命的最后十年,在身为那个时代商业广告短片的主要导演20年之后,肖尔淹没在酒精中,生活在孤独里。他于1994年去世,时年59岁,身后留下了四千多张照片,多数是有关纽
