Toby Joe and I have decided to start a new project. Well, I have decided to start a new project and I’m going to bring him along, kicking and screaming. Every week, we’ll venture out into a neighborhood of one of New York City’s five boroughs and capture whatever it is we see. Last Friday, I spent 4 hours at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral., Today, I’m going to spend several hours in Nolita. While we’re visiting, we’ll take several rolls of film which we will post come Monday. I plan on using black and white and color for this. Hopefully, I’ll end up with some visual stories to share with everyone.
I’ve wanted to do this for a long, long time. Ever since mihow.com was conceived I have wanted to do this. And we did for a while. We took pictures of everywhere we went on bike, foot, subway. And they all still exist here somewhere. But we’re going to start anew. Because back then, we didn’t really set any parameters. This time, I feel that we must.
New York City has always inspired me. It’s the only place I can think of where one could spend a lifetime investigating and never run out of new discoveries. To put it simply, I love that. I have three goals. First, I want to get to know the city a little more. Second, I want to learn something more about street photography and the people around me. Lastly, I’d like to pass on what I find to anyone interested in New York City.
