The New York Photos | Through these photographs of New York City, Michael Ernest Sweet aims to capture the idiosyncrasies of the city life. Many street photographers aim for the face – to capture the eyes – not him. He looks for those “other things” that make us individuals.
Eyes are too easy, they seduce, but to make a photograph that equally seduces without the human face, without the eyes, that’s is a real feat. As an added bonus, these images make the average viewer uncomfortable: ‘my photographs are not easy to like and that’s how I like it’.
