Civic Haze: Uncertainty and Ambiguity in Urban Life
Photography by: Maria Ines Manchego, NYC and New Zealand
Civic Haze is a photographic-essay by Maria Ines Manchego, a visual artist currently living in New York City. Her photographs present an urban landscape portrayed by images reflective of emotional vacancy and loneliness, of memories isolated from their origins, a documentary of a city’s unconscious. The images are mysterious, with features of noir photography. The hazy atmosphere creates a sense of uncertainty and ambiguity, about both time and place. It’s neither night nor day; it’s in-between, like a liminal moment. Although the photographs were inspired by life in New York City, they convey the sense of an anonymous city, rather than of a specific location.
