Yesterday’s post touched on the subject of vision. My creative vision which impacts all my photography revolves around a very simple concept…“simplicity” itself. Simplicity permeates my landscape work, my floral macro work and my urban street photography.
When it come to my street photography, I am always looking to find simplicity within the hustle and bustle of everyday life on the streets. Finding that simplicity comes from focusing my attention on small microcosms of activity within the big picture of everyday life on the streets of the city. Others focus on the crowds and the fast-paced activity inherent in life on the streets. I, on the other hand, focus on the individuals and their seemingly slower pace of life. It is this simplicity that is reflected in all my “Manhattan Project” street photography work.
Here are a few more examples from my most recent foray into New York City. All images were made with a Ricoh GR Digital IV compact camera. Black & white conversions were done in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. And all images convey the sense of simplicity and serenity that results from my creative vision.
“Morning on 8th Ave”
“The High Line Shuffle”
“Warm Sun and Hot Drink on a Chilly Morning”
As always, hope you enjoyed the images.
