As part of my New York Series, I have another wonderful New York photographer I’d like to share with you. Luc Jean-Baptiste is a fellow Instagrammer who I’ve been following for a long time. His photo’s offer an urban feel of New York; he’s your man on the ground capturing everything this city has to offer. Looking through his photos you get a great sense of life here, from the people who call this city home, to the hustle and bustle of the noisy streets. This is New York at her truest form.
Luc’s passion for photography started when instagram was first created. “It’s such a quick way to display your photos and get an immediate response from people.”
“My favourite thing to photograph in NYC are the taxis, they are instantly recognisable as being from NYC”
If you have Instagram I would recommend following Luc, his photos can be found on his Instagram page and as well as his VSCO website.
Whilst researching for my New York series I came across a wonderful photographer on Behance, Navid Baraty. His work instantly caught my eye and I couldn’t wait to share his work with you.
Navid is a Brooklyn based photographer who gave up a job in engineering to pursue a career in a passion of his, photography. He is drawn to photography by its ability to stop time and reveal unexpected details that the eye may miss.
Whilst photographing for various publications and clients, Navid also likes to shoot what’s around him in his hometown of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The collection of photo’s that first drew me to Navid’s photography were his Intersection photos, they are truly stunning, and give you the best perspective and understanding of the height of New York’s famous skyscrapers. Here are some of his intersection photo’s and to view more visit www.navidbaraty.com
I came across this lovely photography series while reading the New York Times website. Every week a different photographer offers a new perspective of life in New York and the surrounding suburbs, the results are brilliant – here are a some of the amazing photo’s capturing everyday life in this great city.
If you’re like me and want to see more of these photo’s, they can be found on the New York Times website here, and they’re updated every week.
I have had this post in mind for a few weeks now and I couldn’t resist sharing it with you as I’m very excited about it.
I have a love affair with New York and I’m not afraid to say it. I want to show you what this incredible city has to offer and within this series I’m going to show you the usual, the unusual, and the downright, unashamedly quirky. I will include photo’s from those who call New York home, show you places you must visit if you go to New York, mouthwatering eateries and not forgetting work from local artists and designers.
To start off the series I have picked out some of my favourite places within this great city. My photos were taken on my last visit to New York, back in 2008, and they capture my view of the city. You might think these are the usual tourist spots to photograph, and you’d be right, but they all mean something to me. Like the wonderful Lady Liberty and what she symbolises; a gift from the French, she stands tall at the gateway to New York, Manhattan, and to America itself.
Brooklyn bridge, connecting many a New Yorker and tourist to the land of opportunity. Without turning around (its hard to resist – trust me), walk to the centre of the bridge, once there turn around to take in New York in all its glory.
Not forgetting Times Square, the central hub of the city, where the bright lights of the billboards are just one of the main attractions here. This is where the city never sleeps.
I can’t wait to share more of New York in the coming weeks, and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. Danni xo
