When we walk around NYC its so easy to see its sheer vastness: the architecture, the infrastructure, the commerce, the sensory onslaught and the incessant supply of humanity. That staggering, impenetrable vastness is what makes New York both endlessly fascinating and incredibly infuriating; and itâ€™s easy to get wrapped up in the blunt, visceral emotion that the hugeness of the city evokes in us. Itâ€™s easy to forget that the dense forest is, in reality, a collection of treesâ€”all of them breathing, growing, living, and dying, one beside the other beside the other.
With my camera I strive to pay attention to the individuals that breathe, grow, and live in New York, my home and the city I love. Through my photography, I want to cast their jetsam in beauty, their silhouettes in reverence, their anonymity in recognition, their hustle in stillness. Bringing awareness to the cityâ€™s small and elegant moments is, for me, an act of love and devotionâ€”to the individuals who reside here and to the beauty of their surroundings.
