Friday-Project: New York Street Portraits

The search for subtle visual interest is a guiding force for me when I take pictures. It has never been more exciting for me to watch people passing by than it was in New York City. Sometimes it was a gesture, sometimes it was their appearance, which made me want to photograph these people and watch them more closely.

The following pictures are actually not new – I took all of them in July, when I was still living in New York. I just developed the rolls of film now and scanned the negatives yesterday and wanted to share the pictures with you.
These images are part of my series »Set & Setting«. You can find the whole project here.
