Whenever I am asked to put my photography into a certain category, I always respond the same way: “My photos are always exactly how I see the world.” I see New York City mostly in black and white. The monochrome is not meant to portray dreariness or melancholy. It’s a homage to a time past, which was simpler and, in my opinion, more honest.

The rain in Manhattan creates an unique atmosphere. The clouds close tight around the buildings and the gray skies seem to drain the color from the city. It generates an almost nostalgic feel as if New York has taken a step back in time. It’s like the whole world has become black and white and the city’s mood changes completely. Umbrellas go up and the people shuffle up and down the avenues. For a photographer, it’s too good to pass up.
