Rearview, Brooklyn 

If You Listen Closely 


Most major metropolises are regarded as dreary and gray. If you don’t pay attention when walking their streets, it can certainly seem that way, especially if you endure nagging anxiety or depression that really shines in the gloom. 


During a particularly rough flare-up of panic disorder in early 2016 I challenged myself to find moments of calm with my camera; glimpses of unexpected beauty, buoyant bursts of color —  attributes that aren't easily found in New York, London, Chicago, Paris, etc., if you don’t listen closely. I needed to manage the chaos. I needed to quiet the constant hum of the city and my mind. 


These photographs are the exotic trophy kills from my daily therapy sessions spent hunting the concrete jungle. After more than a year on this trek, I’ve begun to realize that this “other side” of New York and other world cities is as much a part of their souls as the beige reputations that precede them.
