Personal view on combination of street and architectural photography.

There are 8.4 million people currently living in New York. This city is a shelter for all nationalities, races, passions and interests. People who fail to find home in any other place find it in New York. But, in this city emotinal distance between people is as vast as the population density. The distance between two passangers in a subway is infinite.
In this project I used photography as the investigative tool to examine how average New Yorkers become alienated from the world by the pressure of routine. Inspired by Art Deco and Constructivist architectural styles I incorporated their key elements in the photos: geometric forms; muted colors; symmetrical patterns; steel; glass; concrete and stone. The minimalistic and clean look of the photographs reinforces a feeling of isolation in a big city. Building on the influence of Paul Strand, Edward Hopper Alexander Rodchenko and other realists and modernists, I generated my own vision of street photography.
