Pretty Mean When It Wants to Be


Posted 2012-01-04

New York City is an intimidating place to both live/work in as well as to photograph. And while I currently live just across the river in NJ (for now), after nearly a year and a half working in midtown Manhattan and gallivanting through 3 of the boroughs, I am slowly becoming more comfortable and confident in the streets, both behind the camera and as a pedestrian. That said, now feels like the perfect time to start getting serious about documenting my surroundings -- not just shooting things I encounter on the daily, but rather seeking out new things and people to photograph. I feel the spirit of an explorer growing inside of me each time I make an awkward photograph of a complete stranger I don't know and will never see again.


This area here will be dedicating to keeping you updated on my ventures in New York City street photography. My goal for 2012 is to spend a full day, every Sunday, shooting in a different part of one of New York City's boroughs alongside my friend, and fellow photographer, Luke Nilsson.


Street photography, like many things, takes a great deal of patience, courage and a spirit for adventure. And while this area will concentrate mainly on strangers, it will not only consists of photographs of people.


I'm excited to see where this takes me.
