The Los Angeles Recordings

A street photography project by Kwasi Boyd-Bouldin

Waiting to cross

Outside of Los Angeles, my favorite place to photograph is New York City. It’s status as one of the great cities for street photography is well deserved. This past summer I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon there. It was an incredibly challenging, yet rewarding experience that was unlike any other city I’ve worked in.

I spent some of that afternoon shooting in Manhattan during rush hour. This photograph in particular is a favorite of mine for because of the wide range of people in the shot. From the woman looking at me take the picture to the man in the foreground and the traffic officer in the back, the full range of life in the city is on display.
