New York, Just Like I Pictured It.

October 3rd, 2015

On this week's episode, documentary photographer Andre D. Wagner pays a visit to The Culture Crush studio just as we are finishing the Gotham City issue of the magazine. For this special issue, we focused on New York City, and Andre took to the streets during the summer months to create a portfolio of images just for us. 

We discuss his arrival in the city and first experiences with the overwhelming qualities of scale and diversity inherent in taking your Leica and pointing it just about anywhere here. Bringing up the inevitable juxtapositions of race, class and all of the other subjects not meant for polite conversation, we go deep into the process of photographing the comic book of society we are experiencing every surreal day here in Gotham.
