NYC streets

A sweet creative challenge and the best Xmas present! This winter I took a NYC street photography class at the ICP – International Center for Photography. This five week course brought me to the streets of NYC, Time Square and China Town. The challenge was to capture the energy and spirit of the streets, up close and personal. The reward was feedback from Israeli photographer, Natan Dvir. His work is amazing, he focuses on the human aspects of political, social and cultural issues. The subjects, composition and colors move you into the moment with intense, raw energy – love his eye and style. Check out his projects.

Photography is been my hobby, the way I document my life and express emotions. I am drawn to the energy of the moment. This class introduced me to photographing impersonal situations where I had to develop my relationship with the space, people and time. I had to anticipate the moment in a unpredictable environment. And no cropping! The challenges…
