Description/Abstract

Artist Statement

My photos are all taken in New York City and are inspired by the diversity of the people, the architecture and the constant movement and energy of the City. Looking around I was overwhelmed with the different cultures and random events happening. I got a glimpse into the life of the dog walker trying to manage 6 dogs in Central Park, the Banker in suit and tie on a bicycle, the preppy girl strolling down 5th Avenue, the Chinese women trying to sell me a knockoff purse and the homeless person sleeping in the street. I am fascinated by what you can see on the street. People are moving and not even noticing you taking photographs. I saw the beauty in everyday life, simple things, like an old couple sitting on a park bench holding hands or a child enjoying ice cream

Street photography can be so many different things and is interpreted in many different ways, to me Street Photography. I love how Street Photography is simplistic and pure, interesting photos can be taken in a small town or a large city, and there is no limit on creativity. It should be primarily candid and not involve staging and it should be outside or in a public place like a train station.

I hope, that my photos represent the diversity of the people and reflect the energy, movement and spirit of this constantly on “the go” City.
