Item description for Florian Bohm: Wait for Walk by Florian Bohm Ronald Jones...
Florian Bohm's recent Endcommerical/Reading the City demonstrated his infallible eye for the narrative details of city life with a study of what urbanists call "street furniture"--construction barriers, traffic signs and other sidewalk presences. This follow-up, Wait for Walk, turns the same cataloging eye to the humans navigating around those urban buoys. Bohm photographs passersby standing before traffic signals: motionless or fidgeting, lost in thought or deep in conversation, staring at nothing or sidetracked by a cell phone, chosen for him and posed for him by chance. Whether New Yorkers or tourists, rich or poor, their shared circumstance, a momentary pause, draws attention to the astonishing wealth of information each projects in posture, expression, clothing and possessions, wearing their identities on their sleeves. Bohm was born in Germany in 1969 and lives in New York.
