I’m a documentary street photographer & hyperlocal photojournalist canvassing lower Manhattan with an iPhone.
The beauty of NYC is that there’s something new everyday – a discarded relic, a found object, an epitaph, miles of street art – from constantly evolving neighborhoods falling & rising. An endless urban rebirth allows me to document what’s left of the ragged & sometimes desolate culture & transform the grit & grime into a modern commentary about where we are now & where we’re headed. Most of my images are captured on the streets of the East Village, edited in-device & uploaded. A lot of their inspiration is sourced from writing & literary studies, album covers & underground novels, cyberpunk, beat poetry & outsider art.
I dig Daido Moriyama & I try not to get hit by cars.
