‘Buildings and Cityscapes’ Art Trail

As today’s Oxfordshire Artweeks art trail explores cities and architecture through art, we talked to photographer Miles Gomme https://www.artweeks.org/galleries/2020/miles-gomme a street photographer who captures what he sees in a documentary style. “For Artweeks this year, I’m telling the story of ’50 miles around New York’,” he explains, “ through the photos I took as I walked 50 miles through the city over 5 days to celebrate my 50th birthday.”

“It was my first time to New York, and It had been on my bucket list as a place to go and photograph for a long time. Having seen it in so many movies and heard so many stories about the city I wanted to see and feel it for myself. I had a long list, too long really, of places to go and buildings to see and I walked the streets with my wife and my camera always in my hand, and gathering images of what I saw over those busy days.”

“I’d expected noise, dirt and overcrowding but the contrast between the glitz and glamour and reality of life, and poverty, was very strong. These are the photos I didn’t take this time and I’ll have to go back! Times Square was just too full but I took an image that captures it perfectly. The Chrysler building was spectacular, the view from the top of the Empire State building was great and the Guggenheim Museum very interesting architecturally although some of the exhibits were just too weird! We went to Tiffanies too but left our credit cards outside and we frequented the cafés on side streets where the locals ate to try and pick out the details of the real life around us. My photos summarise what we found: this is my view of The Big Apple!”
