A Street Light, New York

In Noritoshi Hirakawa’s photograph A Street Light, New York, we see a woman dressed only in a pair of high heels, a blue sweater, and tights. She provocatively leans against a wall and presents herself to a male spectator, facing her with his back to the camera. The title A Street Light, New York might be suggesting prostitution or some other environment of anonymous encounter between two strangers. Hirakawa: “(A Street Light, New York is about) a woman who is in a decision-making-process about to determine her reality.”
