[Hannah]: An unnecessary art project

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

The Manhattan Street Corners is my working title for a project to produce a comprehensive photographic portrait of everyday life at street level in daytime Manhattan. Between March and November, 2006, I systematically photographed each and every one of the island’s roughly 11,000 street corners (the exact number is a matter of definition and, in some ambiguous instances, even a matter of judgment).


Actually, for historical recordkeeping this is great. It's just in the sense of art that it doesn't quote grab me.
