The history of the development of the city of New York is engraved on the street of Broadway, which slants north up Manhattan. Collected here are photographic spaces of 98 intersections on Broadway, from its starting point at Bowling Green all the way up to Columbus Circle. These images of New York intersections are photographed at ground level, with a 180-dgree lens, assembled in mandala-like fashion, four buildings in outer triangles with variety of details in diamond shaped center. All photographs were shot between 1973 and 1978, and provide a retrospective view of New York City in the 1970s. Narahara, born in 1939 in Fukuoka, norther Kyushu, has won numerous awards for his work.
