This blog is part of a project borne during my travels as a professional photojournalist. For years, I have worked with bulky digital cameras, always mindful of the technical maneuvers from setting the shutter speed and aperture to editing and toning on a computer screen. In the last few years I have discovered that my iPhone has allowed me to capture scenes without feeling that I am once again on the job. To “point and shoot” has been a liberating experience. It has allowed me to rediscover the excitement of seeing imperfections and happy accidents rendered through the lens of my handheld device. I am able to create imagery, edit, and transmit all the images straight to this blog, creating a modern and efficient workflow for the most inefficient of pursuits - self expression.

New York City, NY | August 19, 2013 Two sides of the same population. I was recently asked if I felt NY was better after three terms of Mayor Bloomberg and all the changes his administration has brought. While NYC may no longer represent the crime-ridden and filthy city I grew up in circa 1980s, there are still huge inequality gaps in wealth, education, and access to opportunity. Gentrification has developed traditional ethnic neighborhoods in the playground for the wealthy, with NYC and its boroughs quickly becoming affordable for only a small minority of the population. Racial profiling is basically condoned, and while I am white - my children are not, and I worry about a future where (like the rest of America) only 1% of the population will get what it needs and wants out of the city - and be protected at the cost of everyone else. #photojournalism #picoftheday #photooftheday #documentary #reportage #streetphotography #urbanphotography #subway #igers #iphoneography #iphoneonly #mobilephotography #nyc
