Growing up in New York City, you are constantly surrounded by tons of people. It is incredibly easy to forget that the strangers you pass on the street are individuals - each with their own unique backstories and complicated life events. Passing someone on the street and making a connection with them, whether it be making eye contact or starting a conversation, is a small miracle. In this collection of photographs, I hope to expose a more personal relationship between humans and their environments. Each photograph captures relatively commonplace moments that, I feel, are often overlooked and deserve a closer inspection for their beauty and authenticity.
