Peter Mendelson
"Grand Central Ghosts," Urban Architectural Photograph, 30" x 45"

2013

US$1,800

About

This black and white, urban architectural photograph by Peter Mendelson was taken in Grand Central Station in Manhattan. The artist has captured the still, stately nature of this landmark building, while the moving commuters, tourists, and city residents move through the concourse, becoming blurred shadows that appear ghost-like in this historic structure. An archway leads to a perpendicular hallway, with signs directing the bustling crowds to subways, shuttles, and other concourses. The artist refers to this piece, saying, "Architectural form and function. Spaces and places both epic and modest." The print is made to order, please allow two to three weeks for printing and production. This photograph is available in varying sizes and an additional presentation option is that of Acrylic - please contact us to request an alternate size or style. A New Englander in heart and soul, Peter Mendelson currently lives in Weston, Connecticut. After studying history at the University of Virginia and getting his law degree at the University of Pennsylvania, Peter moved to New York City to practice law, where he also started to gain an appreciation of urban architecture and street photography. Mostly self-taught, Peter further refined his vision through workshops conducted by various photographers, including Magnum photographer Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, landscape photographer Stephen Johnson, and NYC street photographer Phil Penman. Over time, he developed his particular style, using perspective, light, and color to capture the psychological power of urban and coastal spaces. Whether taken during his visit to the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas, his explorations of Miami Beach and the Maine coast, or even during commutes to and from New York City, his photographs focus on those things that are often overlooked, but which reward their viewers when given a second, deeper look. Peter’s work can be seen in exhibits and galleries in New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
