Silence After the Rain


Silence After the Rain by Alma Kastan

Artist’s Statement: I am studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology and majoring in photography. This image was shot on Fifth Avenue after a rain shower. I had my umbrella in one hand and my camera in the other. I found myself standing across the street from this scene and had to capture it. I was attracted to the empty street in the city that never sleeps.
