New York, the city and the characters, as they were. This is a city defined by the character and diversity of its people, always interesting, complex and unique. These photographs were all 35mm film, and shot during exploratory walks around the city, during days when I was not working as a freelance photography assistant. The film, (100 rolls of Kodachrome including processing), was a gracious gift upon leaving full-time work with Greg Heisler, who was and still is exceptionally creative.
