New York, New York

The weekend before last I was in NYC to photograph a conference. I stayed afterwards, visiting with friends and pounding the pavement, exploring various neighborhoods with the camera. While I'd been to the city a number of times before, this time I really fell in love with it. It sounds cliche, but I adore the tightly-packed humanity, the architectural diversity, and the cultural diversity--all in an ultra-urban landscape.

The photos here are more of a celebration of the possibilities of light play, color, and forms to be found in the city than any kind of conclusive body of work. Looking back over them only makes me realize the gaps that would take months of daily image-making throughout all the boroughs in order to be filled.

Someday, I'd like to return with that kind of time.

  1. I am amazed that you can have both such a love for wild places and a genuine appreciation for urban environments. What a contrast, and yet I can see how photography shapes how you experience such different places.
