In his latest photo-book, Thank You for Your Business, Quentin de Briey has compiled a selection of photographs from his ongoing visual diary, and this time, focused on New York. The book is a ‘visual skate’ through the city; a record of both the pace of New York, and the pace and perspective of someone navigating its streets on a skateboard – taking in unknown side streets and city characters, caught in hazy evening light.
Published by the artist, with Yvon Lambert, the book was printed in a limited edition of 500, and although it documents everyday life, it’s far from boring. The photographs have a frenetic energy to them, as you might expect from someone whose work involves travelling the world, and whose life is constantly connected to the potentials of framing and composition. Quentin zooms in and out through Thank You for Your Business, balancing the classic New York cityscapes with more intimate portraits of the people in his life and those passing through – imbuing a subject that’s well-trodden ground with a distinctive sense of character.
