Poughkeepsie, New York by Andre Kertesz (1937)

The photograph titled “Poughkeepsie, New York” was taken by the artist Andre Kertesz in the year 1937. It presents a high-angle view of a train platform where several individuals are scattered about. Some look like they might be waiting for a train, while others seem to be engaged in conversation or moving along the platform. The composition captures the lines of the train tracks converging in the distance, adding depth and perspective to the shot. There is also the interesting architecture of the station’s roof and supports, creating geometric patterns that contrast with the organic shapes of the people. The aesthetic is distinctly that of the early 20th century, both in the style of the clothing worn by the people and the design of the railway architecture.
