Then it became the birth city of Pop Art and Street Art and nowadays its always and definitely an eternal muse. A city where everything is possible, where encounters are easy and where movement, renewal and speed are major attributes.
Some people consider that New York belongs to the XXth century and the future of modernity is somewhere else, in others cities. But Jerome Revon shows that NYC hasnt lost anything about what she was: its always the big city, its colors are still shining and the passion seduces with the same power and the same movement. Shes definitely in the air.

The movement is finally fixed and the intensity is still here and so the citys energy is extracted. It uses some symbols, puts one beside the other, graffiti and architecture. He also sublimates the details than we can see at the corner of a street and that we unconsciously remember.
So many shots which show the citys euphoria.
He appropriated the city and its icons and he worked on street arts details from Brooklyn and Harlem. These graffiti are mixed with the amazing pictures of famous yellow cabs and the fascinating Skyline of Manhattan.
Classic references and Art deco are mixed with more contemporary achievements and for the first time, splits include three or four different photographs.

Jerome Revon fell in love with the City and for all these reasons he has chosen the title of a drawing of Twins discovered on a wall of latino neighborhood on which was written WE LOVE NYC.
Jerome Revon sublimes the Urban but the Human isnt really present in his works, letting the viewer to project himself in this décor. He represents indirectly the Human through his environment. It enables the viewer to question himself on his look and to project himself, while staying en retrait to look the urban land as it is.
