The manufactured beauty of Central Park never ceases to amaze me. It’s like a carefully composed photograph in many respects, and I love the challenges it poses, particularly in the ways that it changes through the seasons. Here are some photos that exemplify those challenges, images that were shot using medium and large format cameras on a variety of black and white film stocks.
