“Our own Individual New York” is a set of photos displaying the ‘individual’ within his/her space in the city … or perhaps about the city and the space left for the individual.

I arrived in New York with the goal of creating, something far from the stereotypical pictures conveying the city. It was the strength of the images that in the first weeks of capturing the city, the style, the patterns and the constraints of this set began to emerge. This city, in its’ entirety, enables creativity. From shot after shot, reframing and re-evaluating, over a period of time, my theme emerged; and I was able to keep exactly what I wanted of New York. “Our own individual New York” is characterized by a distance from the subject to still display his place in the city, its atmosphere and its lights.

It is a way to put the individual back on the scale of a city so vast, so energizing and so fervent. In my photos, I wanted to recapture and remeasure the individual, so often disproportionately represented. It is the individual that draws the eye, but New York that holds the image. It is the nature of this relationship that I capture: A New Yorker in his/her city. Form street to street, from borough to borough, from Central Park to Staten Island, “Our own individual New York” is simply like this city, it is more than the equilibrium between the city and the people, it is more than the simple addition of the 8,175,133 souls, but principally the entity that unites them all…
