RECKLESS is a long-term portrait series focused on the myriad of different artists that live and work in New York City. Every shoot is a collaboration between the artist and myself; each subject brings their own clothes and ideas in how they want to express themselves.
RECKLESS is an honest and fluid way to capture the essence of who these individuals are.
“I have so much access to whatever and everything; even if I’m not looking for something, I’ll find it. If you take the time to walk around for a second, your mind will be blown by whatever street you haven’t walked before. Career wise (art director) I get inspiration from what I find on the street; I like the combinations and the moods that present themselves. You never know what you are gonna get.”
