In his writing, Alfred Stieglitz says he photographed “Fifth Avenue, Winter” during snow storm on February 22, 1893. He claims he stood there with his glass plate camera for three hours, eventually to capture the moment.

On February 1, 2021, there was a strong snow storm in New York City. Knowing the exact location where Stieglitz was photographing, I somewhat unconsciously pulled myself to the location. Due to less population by pandemic, snow was not plowed well during the day.

Of course, there was no horse carriage climbing up Fifth Avenue. Instead, in three seconds a car turning from East 35th Street honked at me, “Don’t you stand right in the middle of the street!” I know, no one understands what I am doing. Just felt great for myself. KT

Fifth Avenue, Winter 2021. It looks absolutely similar with snow storm, even after 130 years.
