On the Street: Serendipitous Encounters of the New York Kind
Out of the Norm
“As a New York street photographer, I’m interested in appearance, gesture and behavior. I aim to capture the humorous, the unusual and the weird — in other words, whatever is ‘out of the norm.”
In Your Face
“The energy of the city, the density of crowds, is what inspires these photographs.”
New York Winks — NYC
“This collection reflects my relationship with New York City.”
On the Street: Expect the Unexpected
Neil O. Lawner
“New York City is a magnet that attracts so many unconventional types. They come to this great metropolis to live their lives in a way that would be impossible in the towns where they grew up.”
The Ever-So-Stylish Newspaper Salesman
On a street corner in Chelsea, New York, a man sits in a wheelchair selling newspapers. I live in the neighborhood and walk by him every day, and every day I would notice that he wore a different, elegant three-piece suit. I was intrigued by the juxtaposition of this man and his surroundings, and I asked for permission to take his picture.
The Lady Vanishes
“Admiring a regal mural of a Cuban immigrant woman created by artists JR and José Parlá, Rivka Katvan photographed it. Over the next two and a half years, she watched as the street art slowly was buried behind construction of a luxury condo building. This exhibition is Rivka’s chronicle of the mural’s destruction.”
