Hart Ginsburg has created a thoughtful, sometimes dream-like sequence of photographs of urban life. Its images and fragments of language suggest that people in cities are both lonely and also seeking meaning. When I first looked at these photographs, I thought of that great city photographer Bill Cunningham, whose eye was trained to spot the quirks and charms of fashion on the streets of New York. But Ginsburg isn’t really concerned with what people are wearing; rather he captures many people in isolation - on a train and in front of a church, looking at cell phones and taking selfies, people who may be despairing or simply sleeping.
