50/50: United States

Image

This wonderful scene is part of my Waiting for Lady Gaga series photographed one sunny morning in Times Square. I was walking north on Broadway and spotted this crowd that had gathered outside the back door of the Good Morning American Studios on West 44th Street. The scene was other worldly; each person seemed frozen in a pose, and the light bathing the scene was reflected off a distant skyscraper. The fans were waiting in droves on both sides of the street with phone cameras at the ready, all facing the exit doors of the studios in anticipation of Lady Gaga’s exit from the building.

20170477-edit I am a Muslim Too rally in Times Square, NYC on Sunday, February 19, 2017

On Sunday, February 19, 2017 a couple thousand people gathered in Times Square to show their support for Muslims, who have been singled out by the Trump administration because of their faith. All types of people attended, from students to families to rappers to our mayor. The mood was hopeful, a gathering rather than a protest.

This series of photographs is part of Katzenstein’s ongoing project POLITICS & PROTEST

CBS News Sunday Morning aired a piece on Katzenstein’s Times Square Project on Sunday, June 8. Check it out here

In September 2013 Katzenstein began working with the Times Square Alliance on a long-term project is to create a collection of unique imagery that explores the life and diversity of the square and it’s surroundings. What started out as an interesting project about a place that is central to the vibe of the New York City has blossomed for Katzenstein into a full-fledged adventure on par with his extensive travels to places like India. The world comes to Times Square and during certain moments Times Square seems to be the center of the world. Sensory overload is the norm, and within this complex environment are countless stories playing out on every corner, step and plaza.
