Photographer's Note

The official title of this work of art is "The Gates: Central Park, New York, 1979-2005," and the artists behind it are officially known as Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Christo—who, like Madonna, forgoes a last name—was born in Bulgaria nearly 70 years ago. At 22, he escaped to Paris and supported himself by painting portraits. One of his subjects was the wife of a French general who had a daughter named Jeanne-Claude. They married, and Jeanne-Claude became a collaborator and promoter as Christo transformed cans, bottles and wheelbarrows into dada-esque sculptures by wrapping them like UPS packages. From there, Christo and Jeanne-Claude progressed to cocooning public buildings. The first was a Swiss art museum in 1968. These projects were defiantly temporary—as are the Central Park gates, which will be dismantled forever on Feb. 27.
