I am a photo- graphy fellow working on a project for the Design Trust for Public Space with the ultimate goal of creating a still photographic documentary of views in New York to be published and to be an exhibition. I am examining how development is affecting the skyline of the city. I am looking for interesting people who have interesting apartments with views quintessential to their community.
These views may be great, changing, or ruined by development. The goal is to create a body of work that represents the texture of New York through portraits and through a sense of space. Do you know anyone who has a view that is great or in transition or ruined? I am photographing all types of people and places to get a cross section of the city. Each participant will receive a portrait in exchange and knowledge that they are supporting art and making a piece of New York history. Please help me meet appropriate people. Please do not hesitate to contact me with anything that may be appropriate.
