From 28th October to 10th November 2016 we’re creating a photographic census of the city’s faces. We’ve invited the world’s top studio photographer – London-based Rankin – to take unique portraits of New Yorkers. We believe that great portraits don’t require model looks. So NY:SKIN will celebrate the ordinary: the freckled, the dimpled and the lived-in.
Timed to coincide with World Psoriasis Day, NYSKIN will be housed in an installation at 446 WEST 14TH STREET. Any New Yorker can drop in and have their portrait taken. It will be fast and furious – from firing the shutter to on the wall in 15 minutes.
Open 11-8pm* from 28th October to the 10th November
* 29th October – Opens at 12:30pm
To do this we’ve built a unique way to explore the faces of thousands of New Yorkers – part visual commemoration, part interactive census.
You can enjoy the individual portraits or delve further into the census data, based on age, gender, condition of skin or luminosity.
Presenting the city’s skin in a way that’s never been seen before.
