"Africa in NYC' by David Barish 2009

 'Africa in NYC' is my interpretation of African art.
A stone I once hammered and chiseled, I now capture
and chronicle in the context of the Metropolis.

'Africa in NYC' is a work in progress about a seventy-four pound
former block of stone, 3' x 1' x 6". I began my chronicle in the fall
of September 2009. With the transitions of the coming seasons,
wind, rain, snow, light and shadows cast their elements on the 
enigmatic 'Africa'.

 'Africa in NYC' Spring of 2010
In this series, I set out to photograph form, from above
and below the streets. I juxtapose the static figure against
the movement of the iconic, Manhattan landscape.

I carry 'Africa' up and down stair wells, elevators and
roll 'Africa' to various locations. It would be an added 
benefit to raise awareness, foster a dialogue and advocate
a swift resolution to the ongoing conflicts on the African
Continent today in 2014.
