Jack Marijnissen captures the city of New York in a fascinating reverie. His photograph “Sunset in Midtown NYC” depicts the iconic skyline in the glimmering evening light. The entire reality of the city is revealed in this exact instant. Marijnissen transforms the light and color into an artistic composition. The daylight will soon fade and the noise with transition into the quiet of night, but the magical mood of this unique moment remains intact.
The Dutch artist walks the streets of New York, preferring the morning blue hour or after sunset in the gloaming. In his own words: “It is incredible what a difference it makes when you go through the streets and everything is quiet and peaceful.” Using his camera, Marijnissen pinpoints this quiet and perfectly captures it for all eternity.
With the hand-finished Wood Lattice Frame set on top, the LUMAS artwork “Sunset in Midtown NYC” has a very unique appearance. For the viewer, it is like looking out at the city through a window. You can really feel the looming quiet that slowly comes over the city with the setting of the sun. Marijnissen says: “The colors and people that mix with the architecture in the cities give me energy and the motivation to create my photos.”
