New York City welcomes you to document her. The urban flair, walls of neon, paths of asphalt, and passing people from all walks of life are each models inviting the camera to tell their story. These photographs were all captured in early March of 2013. A heavy winter storm had blanketed the southeast the day before, then kissed the Big Apple while making its way north along the coast. Just like any other day, the city was simply the city, uninterrupted and winking at Mother Nature’s affections.
