These photographs were made in the first few years after I moved to New York in 1977. It was immediately clear that Sunday mornings were the quietest and least trafficked hours of the week and I could put my tripod in the middle of Broadway or on the steps of one of the many courthouses without being run over or hassled. Back then Wall Street on a Sunday night was a ghost town with few parked cars and nary a pedestrian. The demolition of the West Side Highway also provided access to views previously unavailable. Even Central Park seemed like a personal garden with the occasional guy wending home from an after-hours club walking upside-down across the ground glass of my camera. It was nothing but lovely to have the city so present for inspection and adoration, for aesthetic meditation.

Jed Devine was born in Mount Kisco, New York and holds an MFA from Yale University. Originally trained as a painter, Devine began taking photographs in 1972 and became fascinated by the effects of light on objects and surfaces, and the sensuality that was possible with the platinum-palladium process.
