Documenting New York

Documenting New York

It has been a big transition, moving from New York City to Portland. I still feel like I'm taking a long break from that concrete jungle, that this is temporary and I'll be on a flight back there in no time. The city filled a part of my soul that I didn't know I had. It pushed me, kicked my ass and was unrelenting. But, it also separated me from a larger part of my life that, over time, took its toll on me. Family. In the end, I felt that a decision made for family, was a good decision. The fact that everything fell into place here so quickly, perfectly and easily was also a sign. 

I am happy to say that I am back in the Pacific Northwest, living in Portland, OR and have joined the incredibly talented studio Instrument.

While I was taking my 3-month travel break, I came across this project by Axel Peemoller. The photo diary documents his parents visit to New York City in a quite simple, truthful and classic manner. The black and white photography captures the city's energy, without the need for words or descriptions. 

Looking at the pictures brought back a lot of nostalgia, but reminded me that nothing is permanent and that my time in New York was treasured and will never be forgotten.
