That first cup of coffee on a Sunday morning never tasted better, waking up to find a feature of my work in the New York Times!
The Metro Section is indeed the pulse of the city. And David Gonzalez, who wrote the piece which accompanies my photographs, is one of the quintessential New York voices, who for many years has explored the richness and complexity of Latino life in New York.
Seen here are images from my most recent project, a work-in-progress, entitled "Olmedini El Mago". The series is a photographic document of Olmedo Renteria “Olmedini”, a 78 years old blind magician: his faith, determination and grit as he works the subways of New York City to make a living. A selection of images was also published in the NY Times LENS on Jan 11th, 2019.
