Skyscraper Jungle

" Symmetry New York Calendar" is an ongoing one year project where I shot images of symmetrical urban architecture during the Lunar Year of 2016. Each day I travelled the urban jungle going from neighborhood to neighborhood to explore the city’s history and culture. All of these photographs have been enhanced by mood, harmony, proportion and balance. During these daily shoots I had to be prepared for weather, light, time of day and any other random occurrence which either hindered or helped my work. Some locations were chosen by extensive research and others just by happenstance. New York is a city where scenes and images can appear before you at any time. Looking closely at the photos you can see the imperfections that occurred during this journey, such as a pigeon standing on a structure to the missing bricks in a building. These "deficiencies" reflect the realities of life and that which surrounds us.
