Times Square is not a place I ever want to visit. Until now: I would love to experience Continuum by Krista Kim where synchronized across 90 electronic billboards, a slowly shifting gradient of color washes over Times Square, creating a moment of calm amidst one of the most visually kinetic places in the world.

“I said to myself, ‘I have things in my head that are not like what anyone has taught me…shapes and ideas so near to me…so natural to my way of being and thinking that it hasn’t occurred to me to put them down.’ I decided to start anew, to strip away what I had been taught.”

Doris Mitsch’s Locked Down Looking Up series is pure delight. It started as a series of images made over time from a fixed point—outside her front door—during the San Francisco Bay Area’s lockdown to slow the spread of Covid-19. Multiple shots were combined to show the flight trails of birds, insects, and bats. While most everything in her life came to a standstill, up in the air, there was still a lot going on. Later, when she started to be able to move around a little more, she began to explore other locations. Click through here to see these images larger.
