#blackandwhitenyc / #blackandwhiteore

I had been living in NYC for 5 months and started traveling between there and Oregon. In NYC I started an instagram project documenting the city in Black and White: #blackandwhitenyc

The observances concentrate on the people traveling the city via every kinds of locomotion: subway, train, bus, foot, bike…as well as some “cityscapes”. The unifying theme being the shift experienced when these images are viewed in a monochromatic lens.

I have contined the project in Oregon and have been shooting as I travel back and forth to these two places on opposite ends of the country. 

This project is inspired by the work of some of my earliest exposure to photojournalism and documentary by mentors and influences such as  Bruce Davidson, Robert Frank, Gary Winograd, Larry Fink, and Henri Cartier Bresson.  

Please take a look at the instagram feed... and please FoLLoW
