Being New York :
Street Photography by Chris Petsos



Millions of people decended from practically every nation on Earth call New York City home, and the result is an impressive bid for being the capital of the world. It's an interconnected hive, buzzing with people who come together in shared spaces and enjoy common interests.

I keep my camera with me all the time. I feel blessed to live in a city where the density fosters such a rich spectrum of human expression and interaction, ready to be captured around every unplanned turn.

The prints available for purchase can be beautifully grouped to portray the human element of the city, and combined with photos from my architectural collection to create a unique and dynamic view of New York. Recommended sizes are noted under each image, with custom sizes available upon request.
