As I recently mentioned, a big aspect of this site has been photography of live music and other random occurrences across New York and Germany. And over an exhausting 18 month period, I focused on a daily, black and white photography project that was meant a love letter to New York and became something much more personal, which I had creatively titled The Black and White Project.
After that had finished, I took a much needed break from shooting on a daily basis and became to focusing on much more informal shooting – mainly shooting when I felt the old itch to shoot. And honestly, it’s a much more loose and pressure-free way of shooting.
In any case, I had some time to kill before the Painted Zeros and Elephant Stone show at Mercury Lounge back in early September when I passed a brilliant piece of graffiti that immediately captured my eye, and begged for me to shoot it.
Gorgeous isn’t it? The color and detail are impressive.
