The City Stages series by Matthew Pillsbury is mysteriously eerie. The shots that are used were taken in the streets of New York City. The ghosts seen in the pictures are actual people that were roaming the streets, however the artist has managed to make them almost invisible, creating a ghostly effect.
Pillsbury did a good job at capturing different sites in the city that reflects its beauty and complexity. The artist states, "I think of these as places that are awaiting the drama of the our lives to come and fill them. There's a dialogue that happens between the way we use these spaces and the spaces themselves."
Many photographers have captured the beauty of New York City, however Pillsbury was able to put a distinctive twist to create something fresh and new.
