This New York street photography project was started in 2001.

Thinking it was complete for ALL these years, finally I realize it's ongoing.  The project isn't complete, it may never be.  But this is what I have SO far.  Through the streets of New York, I capture life as I see it through my lens.  Capturing New York street photography on 35mm film is MY favorite way to photograph.

It takes motivation to capture a semester's worth of film photography in one week.

Good thing, I'm motivated.  After photographing this project in New York, I headed back to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Peck School of the Arts.  Anticipation arose and therefore couldn't wait to begin developing this film in the darkroom.

Little did I know, TSA would require me to check my film-loaded backpack.

After the flight from LaGuardia to Mitchell International, I patiently watched the luggage make its way around the conveyor belt.  The realization hits, my bag is lost.  Crap!

There's good news.

The backpack arrives on my front porch several days later and immediately, I head to the darkroom.

I took hundreds of photographs that week in New York City, here are some of the results.
