Black And White Photography
Brooklyn Navy Yard.
5 Pointz, Queens. One of the best things that I’ve learned to do as a photographer is to just go shoot. Create a story that I believe should be told and tell it. I didn’t know when I was capturing the graffiti mural space known as 5 Pointz years ago that in 2013 the city would vote to demolish it. I didn’t foresee that this artistic hub for artists not just in NYC but all over the globe (artist photographed was from Spain) would be whitewashed, torn down and turned into condos. I have a ton of images from my day photographing 5 Pointz years ago but this is my favorite. The artist travelled from Spain to do a piece on the building in memory of his Grandma.
