His camera captures sights of New York that aren’t always obvious to most people.

Each image documents the small yet extremely significant moments in the life of a city that never sleeps.

Some of the pictures capture New York’s rough side, with fights breaking out in public whether it’s on the beach in Coney Island or on the street in public.

While others tell the stories of real life in the Big Apple in unfiltered and honest detail.
