Photographic enclave. New York City and its inhabitants through camera lens

The title phrase “photographic enclave” expresses the condition of projects that tell about a city using a photographic medium. The article discusses three audiovisual works that use photos to portray New York and its inhabitants: Smoke by Wayne Wang and Paul Auster, Stefan Nadelman’s Terminal Bar, and the multimedia project One in 8 Million. The works represent a variety of film models (drama, documentary, interactive media), and their authors use the formal and cognitive aspects of photography in a different ways. The aim of the article is to analyze the function of photography for portraying urban communities and to see if this treatment was successful.
