For the last 730 days I’ve taken one picture a day and posted it to instagram. No cheat days. No excuses. Subjects big and small, details, landscapes, art and impossibly tall buildings. It's been about New York. It started out because I quit a job without a job and I didn't have a plan. One week alone in my studio apartment and I had to get out. So I started this project, to get out of my head and get moving. It was an experiment. I was alone that summer, so I walked through movies in the park, concerts along the Hudson, picnics, outdoor restaurants on boats and I photographed everything because if I did I was a part of it, even in passing.
I like to think of a picture as capturing a moment in time that is yours. So even if you'll never own a part of Manhattan, you'll have a piece of the city that only you can fully understand, a secret you can never recreate, and the more pictures you take the more you become a part of a collective energy and you become part of the rhythm, alone and together, but united in a city where you can be whoever you want to be. Where you can be anonymous and with an iPhone undetectable. This is my love story to New York, but as I branch out into Pittsburgh and beyond, it’s mostly a love story for myself. So I take pictures and I'm going to keep taking pictures for as long as I can.
