Black and WhiteI have always loved the arts in NYC. Although I was never exposed much to them as a child, I did really come to appreciate them over time. Much of that appreciation comes from the streets of NYC and just walking around seeing people and their art. When I compare NYC to other states and places I have visited, NYC has tons more street art than most.
So I’m walking to catch my bus to go play some cards and I see this guy who is talking pictures of everyday NYC people. I decided to venture in and take a picture and this is what came about.
The artist name is Alex Berg and the project he was working on was titled “One Shot New York” and will be turned into a book sometime soon. I also hear that some of his pictures will be showing up in DKNY in NYC. I’m not sure if my picture will make the cut, but I think it should because I have my Nueva York shirt on and I have a cock in my hand…haha! Yes, I knew that joke was coming. But in all honesty, Alex had this small room where all his magic happened. It was odd because if you look at all the pictures it’s hard to believe that they were all taken in such a small room.
I was very impressed by the whole process and how Alex walked me through the whole pose and so forth. To be honest, I was a bit jealous that I’m not an artist and just a hack at the keyboard. But if you do want to find out more about the artist and his work you can visit here:
