Blue Series: 1, 2, 3 & 4

by Christina SOTO

Since I began documenting images from my kitchen window in 1998, the Cafe series has changed my way of looking at the simplicity of everyday life.

Not only have the characters in the stage have come and gone but also the corner of 67th Street and Park Avenue, West New York, New Jersey, has physically changed. Two years ago, a clock was installed in the middle of the street in an island. Since then, each image is documented by the exact time the frame was shot.

The original "Cafe" series I have printed are silver gelatin prints and also hand coated platinum/palladium prints on watercolor paper. I have (50) fifty images in this series.

Once the town began installing the clock, I was there documenting the procedure from beginning to end.  Since that time, I continued to print all the images in silver gelatin. Two other series emerged. The "Boogie Night" series which won two awards, one in 2000 at the Perkins Center for the Arts, Moorestown, New Jersey, I was one of ten photographers to win an award which the show was written up in the New York Times. The second award was this March at the Old Cultural Church in Demerest, New Jersey. I was one of three artists to win an award of excellence.

The second series, "Amigos" "Friends" are images of neighbors with their dogs. Some of the "Amigos" are no longer with us. I am glad to have been able to
document that space of time in their lives. Especially since that was one of the neighbors only companion in her life. One of the street cleaners who I began the series with was relocated to another area.

Last year I began the most recent series, The "Blue Series" are images printed on the computer, giclee prints.  It is the "Cafe" series but the energy is different. I
shoot most of the images at night when everyone and everything is still and listen only to the sounds in my head either waiting for someone to pass by or just the quietness of the mood of the night.  I have (25) images up to now and I am currently working at finishing this series.

Currently, I am exhibiting my "Cuba" series images in Manhattan, New York at Fusion Bar/Lounge.
