New Street Image: Man at the MoMA

Man at the MoMA

Here, I captured a moment in time at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

What struck me most was the excitement and the curiosity of the patrons—from school children to matrons, and everyone else in between.

I followed this elderly gentleman as he nearly skipped around the exhibition rooms with childlike glee, discovering modern masterpieces at every turn. He paused here to fully absorb the rolling abstract bodies depicted in Pablo Picasso’s Two Nudes.

I was reminded of what Picasso once said, "It takes a long time to become young."
