Notes: The context of Huhta photographs is ambiguous, obviously investigating a stark, urban landscape, although stated to be New York City; it could be any large megapolis. The photographs are almost monochromatic, usually devoid of any color, providing an overall somber grayness to this place. In the process of investigating a place, Huhta finds haunting touchstones that speak to the potential isolation and disassociation that can linger in a crowded, yet foreign, urban space.
