Street Life is a portrait series that is inspired by the very unique urban atmosphere and
ethnically mixed habitats of NYC. There is something very special about scrolling in
Manhattan, you see the most outrageous and wild characters interacting all together.
As a young teenager I remember how influenced I was by the movie “The Basketball
Diaries” with Leonardo Di Caprio, which was based on an autobiographical novel with the
same name, was written by Jim Carroll. I was fascinated by the urban magical ambient that was coloring this youthful film and wasn’t the typical coming of age American cinema. I was shifting away to NYC with these images and wondering how it would feel to live like these characters in the city, act like them, be weird sometimes like them, and feel free to be whatever you really are.

When I decided to take these portraits, I knew I wanted to capture that street vibe and
create a semi-documentary scenario, when I and Jaimosn will scroll between the live audience that is hanging out in the west village around the west 4th basketball courts.
Falling in love with New-York is also falling in love with the people, and I think Jamison took his very own special character and body language and love for dancing and allowed himself to be one of these fun weirdos for our photoshoot while walking around with a melting ice cream cone and dressed up like a lovely pimp and watching a basketball game with the rest.
