100 Days of Summer
I’ve spent three summers pacing up and down the boiling blocks of Brooklyn and the Bronx trying to capture the playful festival-like energy of these New York City streets, and fire hydrants are what best exemplify this energy. When the valves are open, they release an incredible amount of happiness, pride and mischievous ingenuity. Water brings communities together, crystalizes a moment of euphoria, and relieves its liberators from the summer heat.
The series 100 Days of Summer includes approximately 100 pictures of open fire hydrants. These are my personal favorites.
