Wonder wheel 2

Wonder Wheel

Piece description from the artist

Years ago, having just moved to NYC and seeing everything for the first time, I tried to shoot in a style that generated excitement, wonder and a sense of exploration all in one and still strive for this today. To some, the city may feel claustrophobic and restricting, which is why I try and find moments of peace and calm throughout all the mazes and avenues.

This photograph shows the Wonder Wheel at Coney Island. The Wonder Wheel was first opened in 1920. In 1948, a Greek immigrant promised his future wife that if she married him, he would buy her the ferris wheel. In 1983, he fulfilled his promise. Now run by their son, the ride is now a prime spot for proposals.
