The Working Proof: Jonathan Brierley – Wilderness New York

New print release: this week the Working Proof is teaming up with New York artist Jonathan Brierley to bring you his photograph Wilderness New York to benefit Bowery Mission. I have a personal connection to this photograph, I was visiting the city when the storm Nemo hit and it truly was hauntingly beautiful.

This particular view onto the park was quite unique on that day. It’s hard to look in any direction in the park and not see at least a portion of the city skyline poking through the trees, but today was different. The snow acted like a kind of shield on the park, creating an almost perfect feeling of an isolated wilderness. This shot aims to convey that wilderness and a sense of knowing curiosity for any New Yorker familiar with the busier views of Central Park.

I loved reading Jonathan’s interview and description of his experience in the park after the storm hit. Jonathan has chosen to pair with Bowery Mission because their work in New York is inspiring and something that immediately comes to mind when thinking back to the storm.

This print is available in multiple sizes. It was digitally signed by the artist. The 8×10 and 11×14 prints are numbered by The Working Proof. Learn more here. Read our interview with Jonathan Brierley here. You can buy the print here.
