For the past few years I’ve been shooting a feature for the website www.Racked.com called “Street Scenes”. I approach people on the street and ask them about their outfit and then take a photo. This is similar to a feature in Time Out New York that I had read for years (its like the first page when you open the magazine) and also a guy named The Sartorialist, has made quite a name for himself doing the same thing. Although this feature hasn’t brought me the cover of a magazine just yet, I’ve been interviewed for a fashion website and had some of them featured in an Art magazine last year…so its a good gig.
I really enjoy this feature because I meet and photographed a ton of interesting people including models, musicians, CEO’s, EIC’s, Mo Rocca, Parker Posey, The Sartorialist, and a woman whose wedding I ended up photographing because of this feature.
I have hundreds of these photos in my collection over the past few years, and will probably post them here every once in awhile..but here are some from the past few months I’ve photographed in New York City
