Cuddebackville, September 2018 – I am grateful to the many friends who have allowed me to shove cameras in their faces for years. Zack lives in Maine now but I got a few rolls developed from the summer and it made me think that he's probably put up with it a thousand times over the time we've known each other with no complaint. May we hall have more friends like Zack.

New Orleans, February 2017 – I was rolling a cigarette on Bourbon Street and this guy approached me asking if he could roll one too. After we talked for a bit about how I was traveling taking photos he took it upon himself to become my personal hypeman. He started flagging down attractive passersby for portraits "Hey, you got a world famous photographer here! You wanna let him take your picture? Hey miss! Hey you look beautiful tonight, do you want a picture?" – it's not a technique I have ever replicated but if you can manage it consider it highly recommended.

March 2019 – Unless I am in a really bad mood, I will almost never decline when someone asks for a cigarette or a light. These are simple things. Bare necessities in the sense of being human, lower in maslow's hierarchy of needs than they should be, but fundamental all the same. This ties into the large unorganized fraternal organization of smokers covering the united states making lighter flicking gestures at each other and forever offering each other a dollar. We take care of our own. Sometimes more than you need a smoke you need to be seen as human, to briefly witness someone give someone something they need at no cost to themselves. These are free bite-sized mitzvahs served up on a daily basis to anyone who might feel like they are running low on karma.

Sometimes the city makes you wonder what the word alone even means. It's a strange thing to be alone here, and it exists on a spectrum rather than a binary anyway. When we are on an empty street, devoid of joggers, dogs, or pigeons, and a stranger 10 floors up watches us wander, are we alone? Yet it is hard, at times, in the darkness of short days, to not feel alone, lonely, or at least lonesome even as you cancel plans and regretfully decline invitations to go to places you have never been. On the days when you can't bear to be yourself the guy at the bodega will say "what's up brother" and your neighbor will nod hello while walking his dog. They can see you exist, after all.

Times Square, June 2017 – When you really get to know someone your communication with them starts to evolve. Spoken language is a tricky thing, subject to interpretation and misunderstanding. But once you start to learn a person they can begin speaking their heart through a brief glances of the eyes upward, quiet exhalations, or a subtle gesture unnoticed by all but you that means "let's get the fuck out of here." #urbangrammers #justgoshoot #streetdreamsmag #nyc #itsthejoint #riseandshinecollective #thosenewyorkstreets #SDMfeatures #nycprimeshot #shootintothesun #streetleaks #newyork_ig

In the summer you find yourself falling in love on every other block. Everyone has a wry smile and a fresh outfit, and lets be honest, New Yorkers are beautiful people. Everything in the city is fleeting, crushes are like graffiti, people constantly writing their names over each other. No expectation of permanence: that’s where true freedom can be found. None of us will last forever, after all. #urbangrammers #justgoshoot #streetdreamsmag #nyc #itsthejoint #riseandshinecollective #moodygrams #thosenewyorkstreets #SDMfeatures #nycprimeshot #shootintothesun #streetleaks #newyork_ig

Most New Yorkers secretly want their photo taken. When I first started shooting in the street I would shoot from the hip, worried about the looks and judgement I imagined I’d have to wade through. But it turns out the interaction is really simple: you raise your camera, or you already have it to your eye and you rotate your hips towards them. If they don’t want their photo taken they will look away or put a hand up. That’s fine with me and I don’t click. But most people quietly accept it, pretending I don’t exist when I know they can see me. Some people think I’m taking a photo of something really interesting right behind them. My favorite people look right down the barrel of the lens, realize what’s going down, and lean in to their character. #street #streetphotography #riseandshinecollective #streetdreamsmag #thosenewyorkstreets

Going back through all the photos I’ve taken since I moved to the city. It feels like a long time, but it can be summarized in half a dozen pictures. When you grow up as a teenager loving street photography there is really only one city: New York. I have over 1000 photos from the past 4+ years now. I’m moving my favorite work here and retiring @ejfoxphotos - I never wrote captions on that account. I want to do better about that moving forward. #street #streetphotography #streetdreamsmag #riseandshinecollective
