The picture is in black and white, hence adds to the reality of human vision. The human need and the human greed are all depicted in the picture, since the city is a personification of what humans of the city stand for, their work and their greed that has led them to make the city as it is. The never ending life and the never ending working nature of the people of big cities are inferred from the picture, since the picture is taken at night when all lights are on and the road is full of traffic. This picture resembles the extent of human needs and what they end up making by enacting their mind and their desires. Justin’s work is far different from Abbot as she attempts to resemble what is art and what one picture means more than one thing, whereas Justin involves himself in the pictures making them less substantial.
Ebbets was again a far famous photographer, and his life is full of daring pictures of humanity, wildlife, science and war. He was famous due to his regular contribution to Miami Daily News, and a freelance photographer for the government, defense set ups and many tourism related spots. He was an unreserved photographer where he used all his faculties and skills to click pictures of great magnitude. One of his famous picture is “Lunch atop a skyscraper”, in which many workers working are seen having lunch while sitting on a steel bar of a crane coming out of the building with no support (Ebbets).
The picture shows exactly the workers conditions while working for such gigantic buildings in which the educated and rich both work alike, without any signs or conception of the effort that has gone into making the building. The workers life is seen to be worthy only to a part that goes faulty and is replaced by a new one, which is what exactly the picture indicates. The picture shows the plight of workers in building tall buildings where they risk their lives and still do not agitate about the conditions. The picture show how the menace of capitalism renders these poor workers bereft of any security and is subjected to work under life threatening conditions.
