Description
In this vivid composition, it's a beautiful spring day and everyone is outdoors enjoying the Boston Public Garden. But is this particular path really so crowded? And why is everyone wearing red? By combining several exposures to describe exactly what happened in this spot over a period of time, the artist requires us to look carefully and suggests that reality is at least as strange as fiction.
