Joel Sternfeld’s ‘Walking the High Line’ is a great example of hidden beauty. The ‘High Line’ is an elevated abandoned railway line that runs through the heart of Manhattan.
Sternfeld was part of a group of local residents who formed an advocacy group called ‘Friends of the High Line‘ who campaigned for the preservation and re-use of the line. They succeeded and work has now started on creating a urban parkland for the public. Sternfeld however, wished the high line to be preserved as it was, as it is in his photos.
