I tend to be drawn towards imagery that confuses me; where I can’t quite tell what is going on. I find I ask myself that very question with many of illustrator Kelsey Dake’s drawings. But more than that, I am digging on the concentrated, black lines that feel as though gravity is getting the best of the ink… there’s a nice mix of humor in the work as well.
Daniel Weiss is a photographer from NYC practicing what he calls, “traditional street photography.” One of his bodies of work, entitled “New Yorkers,” depicts the everyday people he encounters throughout New York as the title suggests. His goal is to capture the traditional cast of characters of the big city. His other portfolio, titled “Street Scenes,” is more your basic street art. In each of his photos he aims for a timeless feel, only capturing scenes that do not give away the time period. He says that by not being able to tell if the photo was taken now or 50 years ago, “it allows you to focus more on certain, more interesting details that may be in the photograph.” He states, “Especially since I feel that most the city nowadays is in an aesthetic slump that it will never recover from.” Check out more of his work after the jump, or visit his site.

Matthew Kelly is a photographer living and working in NYC. His photography is definitely nothing less than unique. His current project “As My Father,” depicts a young man stepping into his father’s shoes, literally.
