And although an avid photographer of urban landscapes that you can see here, there is something about the face of humanity that I find most compelling.
As a portrait photographer, I strive to make a special connection with my subjects in order that we can craft an artistic and dramatic black and white portrait.
But as documentarian, I am moved to use photography as a voice for those whose own voices are silent, or largely unheard.
One example is my series of street portraits where I find interesting faces, unaware of the camera, or themselves. They’re lost in thought, engaged with a friend or with the city itself.
The other is my series of iPhone photographs of Subway People, a revealing look at people involved in one of the most dreaded New York City activities, their daily commute.
I hope you enjoy my take on humanity and come back often.
Enjoy, Bob Estremera
