I am not going to go as far as to pronounce these “Equivalents” as the great Alfred Stieglitz did in 1925, equating different cloud shapes with different human emotions (see video below). But since college I have been shooting them and as we all know, there is something epic and transcendental about them. For me, they always seem to bring about feelings of my mortality, of the cosmos, thoughts bigger then myself to say the least.
These were shot on an evening in July this summer from my roof in Crown Heights. Minimal post-processing was done on the images. They were shot with a Canon G9.
A cool video featuring Georgia O’Keefe about Stieglitz’s Equivalents.
