While in New York I was facinated by the isolation of the city. For a place that is so populated and so glamorized it was as if each individual were in their own small world. No one cared to recognize eachother or to even look at another person's face. It seemed so strange to me to think about the self-centered lifestyle each person was living. Leaving no room for any other human contact other than their immediate circle. As I took each of these photographs, instead of looking through the viewfinder I chose to look at the person. With the camera away from my face there was nothing blocking me from seeing into each stranger's soul.
