The past few weeks I’ve been out several times to photograph strangers on the streets of NY. While street photography is an enormous genre in the city and there are tons of photographers who capture fantastic images, I’m a portrait photographer, not a street photographer. I’m interested as much in a person’s face as I am in the scene, so to capture the faces of New York in the best way I know how meant bringing lighting on location. With a pretty minimal setup and the help of a friend we made some portraits of just a few of the characters willing to take a minute out of their day to pose for a photo.
