New York City - Rain at Night

When I first started delving into photography, one of the earliest conundrums I remember reading about involved the debate between technical perfection and artistic license. It always struck me as an odd topic, particularly since I have always approached my photography as a means to express emotion and mood rather than a way to highlight technical prowess.

It’s difficult to say that there is one right way to approach art since all art is subjective. It’s important though to figure out what you are trying to express. Are you trying to express a…continue reading here…

New York City - Chinatown on a Rainy Evening

When does a photograph transform from a snapshot into something more transcendent? This is probably one of the most complex questions that photographers encounter.

I firmly believe that subjective taste plays a large role in deciding what is or isn’t memorable. One could debate the existence of a collective subjective taste. However, rather than debate about collective subjective taste, I can share how I differentiate between a snapshot and a more memorable photograph. 

When I took this photo, it was one of many I took of the this street corner. This happens to be one of my favorite areas of Chinatown and I wanted to convey the …continue reading here…

New York City - Rain - Greenwich Village.

"The decisive moment" is a defining phrase associated with Henri Cartier-Bresson, the father of modern photojournalism. It is a phrase that has influenced countless photographers over the years and sparked endless debate and theory.

When I first started taking photos of New York City, I knew very little about the history of photography. The movement of the city’s… continue reading here…

New York City. Rain. Doyers Street. Chinatown.

On evenings when the sky 

seduces the city 

with its tears of happiness, 

the streets shine 

in the gleam of nearby lights.

And broken-hearted alleys 

wind their way

through the empty recesses 

of lover’s hearts

as the city soaks

in the warm afterglow 

of what the sky has wrought.
