About ‘New York, New York’:

I was 19 when I first started visiting New York. It’s the first big city I ever experienced, and not only shaped who I now am, but the photographer I am today. New York City is quick paced – a gigantic city that can make you feel very small, but if you blend in just right — can use the voyeurism to one’s advantage.

Through my 10 years visiting New York, I have collected photographs over time that represent different eras, and for me personally, various moments of my life that I still remember taking. I always have a 35mm on me, and during the hustle of a New York day, many tiny moments are overlooked — but if I stop and see something of interest, I photograph it.

Whether it’s in a literal sense like signage on the street, or kids on the subway, the frenzy spirit of New York City is something I’ve always been drawn to, and is still reflective in my editorial and commercial work today.
