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. Matthew’s other photos have the same portrait like qualities, and just like the first project, tell a dramatic story. Check out his website for more of his work and upcoming projects.

Illustrator Jason Polan is on a mission. A mission to draw every person in New York. Jason is spending 2 minutes a piece drawing people he sees in the streets of New York City and blogging the results daily. The result is fun doodles of interesting characters and even some famous names. If you’d like to be a subject, check out the blog and email Jason, and he may inconspicuously sketch you at your decided location. More NY portraits after the jump.
This series, entitled Babel Tales, is a recent work of Danish photographer Peter Funch. To create each photograph, he sat at an NYC street corner with a tripod and snapped away, eventually finding common elements amongst all the pictures and compositing those elements into one shot. The result is something familiar yet very artificial – feeling almost as if each photo is staged.
We have images of PJ Richardson‘s submission for the Diesel x Keystone Design Union (KDU) “Only The Brave” Exhibition, which opened on April 30th in NYC. I love how he juxtaposes gentle greens, salmon pinks, and loud reds with equally vibrant, downright playful monsters and type. All of these visual elements make this piece particularly mesmerizing!
