I lived in nyc from 1998–2020. I’m lucky to have met all these people or even call them friends. They are all part of the semi-organized chaos that gives NYC that magical feeling, the sense of community that makes large cities so special. I always took street photos here and there over the years, then when Maia and I had our son I would push him around in the stroller and bump into people. I would ask them if I could take their portraits and soon the series became what is now called “Street Lords”. On the streets we are open, in motion, we are ever-changing. One thing that I love about these images is the vibe you can capture when you only take one or two frames, the background or lighting or any of that photography type stuff matters less, but you still end up capturing something intimate. This is my love letter to NYC, as well as many other cities I’ve loved over the years. And to you guys. Thanks. – XO Peter
