Chasing The Hatman
It's not a fashion statement and it's not about the hats themselves.. I'm searching for the father I never had and in a twisted way a man in a fedora is the ideal 1950's stereotype of a father figure. I keep coming back to the streets, searching and searching....
Along My Way
These are images Erin made using her iPhone while traveling for work or pleasure. She tends to use her iPhone rather than DSLRs when doing street photography, especially in foreign places, because it allows Erin to feel less encumbered. She also loves that she can shoot, edit and share quickly.
This is an ongoing project that began while commuting on San Francisco’s city trains and buses. Amy is looking for beauty found in the moments where we are neither here nor there.
Now Here Nowhere
The images in Now Here/Nowhere examine the geographic space of the everyday world, and the boundaries of what can be known about the world we inhabit. They highlight the collision of disparate elements in otherwise ordinary places, reflecting Ben's own feelings of being lost in an ambiguous world.
Troy has spent the past few years walking a 5 or 6 block stretch of Mid Market Street, shooting before and after work with the occasional lunchtime break. On the weekends he spends up to 2-3 hours per day hitting the streets - these are the results of those walks.
