Weegee, It’s six o’clock in the morning on the electric clock on top of the Consolidated Edison Company building on Fourteenth Street… I think they have the clock up there to remind the customers to pay their bills, ca. 1945

Inspired by a visit to the amazing Christian Marclay 24-hour video Clock at the Paula Cooper Gallery last winter, I spent the better part of a day searching the archive for 1,440 photographs, representing all 1,440 minutes of a day… not surprisingly I couldn’t find a photo of every minute… nevertheless, here are some highlights, a chronological cheap imitation.
Clock, still timeless, returns to New York City today through August 1.
