Yesterday I went out with the mission to make a photo, not take a photo. All too often I find myself snapping and running vs. taking the time to wait for the shot. I want my street photography to push beyond the limits of simply being in the right place at the right time. This is what I found along the High Line.
The ultimate goal is to combine these photos into a series called ‘Tourists.’ I am fascinated by society’s constant need to document everything, yet the photos that result say absolutely nothing. Why do we take so many selfies? I feel no such need to take selfies, so what am I missing? I brought only my Canon 16-35mm wide angle lens.
