One of my favorite places to photograph is museums. Every time I went to MOMA NEW YORK, I would watch the activity at this cut out in the wall where you could see people going up or down between floors. I tried for a very long time, and this particular day, I got what I wanted.
I saw these two nurses outside our local hospital taking a break. They said they received 8 new COVID patients this morning. It was only 11:00am. They lost 3 yesterday. These men and women on the front lines of this war really are heroes.
One of my favorite things about street photography is the street portrait. This is a man in Chinatown, NY. I approached this man to ask if I could take his picture, only to find out he didn’t speak English. I was attracted to the face that showed so much character. A smile and a non-verbal indication to the camera that I wanted to photograph him was all I needed. He smiled back and let me spend a few minutes photographing him. This is from that brief interaction on the streets of New York.
This is a Sunday morning in the East Village, NYC, on St. Mark’s Place, where sitting out on the front stoop is still a common scene.
