About the photograph
It can happen that you’re walking on the streets of New York and suddenly a giant inflatable plastic rat blows up in front of you on the sidewalk. The Unions place them in front of buildings that are under suspicion of being in violation of worker’s rights – in order to stigmatize them. To me, they always seem silly.
I took this photo in December 2014, at the corner of 30th Street and Park Avenue South – it’s the claw of the inflated rat. The perspective is quite exaggerated and at first glance, it’s hard to tell what you’re looking at. There have been many days when I’ve felt as though I’m being chased by a giant New York rat.
