Gregory writes: “I had a realization not long ago while walking the streets of New York – my view of the world had shrunk to a corridor ten feet wide and one story high. I paused a moment to expand my gaze, taking in the vibrant details of urban life that I had allowed to become mundane. It is these details perceived in our periphery – a flicker of reflection, movement of shadow or burst of color – which reaffirm the authenticity of our reality.”

“I have attempted to capture these details through this series of photographs. To remove them from context and separate into the basic elements of shape, line and color. To transform into something only seen by our subconscious.”

“New York is a city with an enormous gravitational pull – it beckoned me almost five years ago. It draws people from around the world, many wishing to practice alchemy on themselves. It was the same for me, a transmutation that is still taking form. I intend to make gold of that.”

Nivia writes: “From a very young age, we are taught to hold on to things and/or people that bring us comfort, but as we grow and experience pleasure, pain, and loss we may learn to let go and appreciate the simple things in life. Through these photographs, the subjects I have observed and engaged with express in a simple form that letting go, being still, and appreciating the given moment is a path to vibrant happiness, comfort and freedom.”

Paul Katcher’s interest in photography grew out of the tech environment, creating images since he bought his first digital camera, a then-state-of-the-art 1.3 megapixel Olympus C-900 Zoom around the turn of the millennium.
