Photo Of The Day: Eat the Street, NYC

Eat the Street, NYC. May 2011

Captured this on the streets of NYC during Dasein artist in residency last May.

[BTW, I’ll be showing a lot of new work in this manner over the coming weeks and months. Voicing your opinions on this or any image in the future is welcomed. Thanks.]

    Very Klein. I like it, the cleanliness sof the image juxtaposes the subject and feel nicely

    This screams classic NYC photography. I’m gonna go listen to some Beastie Boys.

    Brings to mind this famous shot by this famous photographer, from Back In The Day — the inimitable WILLIAM KLEIN:

    I like this photo because it seems candid and i feel as if there could be a story behind it. true street photography.

    Awesome photo, what mode has been it taken?

    Contrarian here. It’s OK, but not great. It’s got some edge to it, but mostly limited to initial cool factor. For me, no reason to come back and linger over the image. Could be more interesting as part of a series–I want more context or storyline to go along.

    I like it quite a bit – very engaging.

    I would *love* to know how you got that pose and expression out of him. Was that his natural reaction to you pointing the camera at him? Or did you prompt him somehow? (“Shoot me back!”)

      unprompted. i asked him if I could take his photo. he posed for the camera just like this….

        This is why I don’t ask Too often, whatever I find interesting about someone on the streets of NYC invariably evolves to them showing off for the camera, throwing signs, or some shit. But I guess this isn’t altogether unexpected from a dude wearing an “eat the street” shirt.
