"For the photographer," Constantine Manos reflects, "neighborhoods and institutions and public events are only abstractions until the camera captures the individual people who breathe life into them. Going out into the city with a small camera and making hundreds of pictures of people doing hundreds of things is a dizzying odyssey. It's like gathering the bits of an intimate mosaic: even in thousands of photographs, it is impossible to fit all the bits together. They are fragments, suggestions of the myriad human moments in the daily life of a great city."

Upcoming Event: The Costa Manos Masterclass
