Always Love, All Ways
1 is a personal love letter to my 6+ years in NY. The iOS photography is based on the spirit of shooting-from-the-hip, as each shot was captured in one attempt.
Between 2013 and 2016 armed with an iPhone 5 first, and then an iPhone 6, hundreds of photos were taken across the 5 boroughs.
There would be only one rule and restriction during this process and in general my approach to mobile photography: only one shot and no retakes of a given subject or scene. If the moment was missed, on to the next one.
The primary app used was VSCO and all of the edits were done within the VSCO as well. All photos have been cropped to a square format and currently do not appear on any social media platform.
With no original intent other than something to pass time, the photographs would inspire a documentation and a personal love letter to moments of time in New York.
1 now aims to be a platform for photography, writing, sound design and apparel. Some merchandise (music, prints and apparel) will be up for sale, with a percentage of the future sales being redirected to worthwhile causes.
The platform is tentatively slated to launch February 2017
