2) Cezanne Woman

A shot at the escalators of the Judiciary Square subway stop Washington D.C. USA, about 8:23 p.m. Nov 16. I stopped here and took 10 shots, after traveling 27 miles to a lecture on Wei Wei at the Hirsshorn art museum. When I got to the museum, after traveling for about an hour and a half, a guard told me: “Talk’s been cancelled.. Speaker got sick this morning.” G-Damn. So I photographed people at a subway stop. This is my favorite shot of the 10.

  1. Hi – I just stumbled on your blog (from another blog link) and really like your work. And I had a quick question for you – in the photo (Cezanne Woman) can you tell me why you gave it this title? I can guess – but was just curious because I have learning a little bit more and more about this awesome painter. Thanks so much, ~y.
