Description

Date/Time: January 26, 2000, 1:30 p.m.
The remarkable thing about this Notman photograph is that so many people stopped working and looked straight into the camera. At that time the appearance of a photographer was still unusual enough that people stopped what they were doing - in this case, snow removal - and posed for the shot, even on what must have been a cold day. It was also cold the day I took my photograph, and it took many Polaroid tests to find the correct vantage point. Nobody paid the least bit of attention to me, or to my camera.
