Inside New York
New York City attracts a diverse and dazzling array of entrepreneurs, artists, students, business people and health care professionals from every corner of the globe. The opportunities that the city offers - along with the constant stimuli of culture, art and just plain excitement - attracts the most ambitious and forward thinking men and women from every continent and almost every country.
This common thread of ambition, known as the New York State of Mind, often means that residents of the city are open to all types of inspiration and aesthetics as they embrace what the city has to offer - all while bringing along their own individual contribution to the mix.
In a city where you can be yourself and no one bats an eye, the home is one place people choose to let their individual expression fly.
These photographs were made in the homes of New Yorkers all across the five boroughs of the city; Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx as well as Jersey City - the sixth borough so to speak. These portraits provide a modern day glimpse of the ever-evolving demographics of one of the most dynamic cities in the world while providing the viewer with an intimate look inside the home of a New Yorker.
