NYC Street Photography is a prolific collection of authentic New York City images brought together by Brian Nobili and Ricky Powell. Their lifetime relationship with the neighborhoods of New York and the people within these communities enabled them to assemble 12 New York City street photographers that capture the rhythms, movements and landscape of one of the worlds most complex urban environments.
Street Photography captures the soul of the city, from grime to glitter. Stars, villains and everyone in between, people who together make New York what it is. This book includes images by highly acclaimed street photographers Jamel Shabazz, Joe Conzo, Sue Kwon, Estevan Oriol, Cheryl Dunn, Craig Wetherby, Akira Ruiz, Peter Pabon and SDJ.
With the hardcover’s overall concept created by the world renowned Bronx artist CES even this book’s exterior is a work of art.
NYC Street Photography presents a strong group of all-star photographers with all 5 of NYC Boroughs represented through carefully curated pictures. Coming from different ethnic backgrounds, religion, gender and age only enhances this humble presentation of NYC Street Photography – it’s the joint!
"This collection of photographers reflects the city as only someone can that is truly a part of the surrounding culture and possibly even influencing the culture. This is a must have collection of unfiltered unapologetic imagery." – Jay McMichael, Senior Photojournalist, CNN NYC
Ricky Powell is an individualist recognized as a living legend in his own apt and the world at large. Known for his environmental portraiture, Pow- ell’s photographs focus on the organic New Yorker. His photographs si- multaneously convey intimacy and detachment as they provide a unique lens through which the viewer can analyze the mundane. The connection between Powell and his camera is only further stimulated by Greenwich Village, where he currently resides.
Brian Nobili is a recognized producer and street photographer working out of the Bronx’s Little Italy neighborhood. His works have been fea- tured in the press worldwide since 1995. He has also appeared (above the fold) in the NYT, Infamous mag, NBC/Universal, Juxtapoz, Frank 151, The Source, 12ozprophet, AdAge and Freeman’s Auction house. No- bili prefers his work out on the streets of the Bronx creating lasting time capsules before gentrification changes take hold in NYC’s last holdout Borough.
