Stars & Stripes. Stars and Stripes is a project that I completed in 2017. It was an intense 5 day trip to New York City. All shot on 35mm film (Leica M6). The project involved exploring the city and riding the subways for around 10-12 hours a day, to try and get into the vibe of these incredible places. The focus was on the locals and how they interact with the spaces and people around them. The city that never sleeps lived up to its reputation.
