view over New York from Empire State Building

Alone in New York

Alone in New York

I had the chance to meet up with the very inspiring Peter Hurley in New York. Peter is a well-known headshot photographer who came to Berlin a year before and I thought that it would be best to interview him in person, while doing the field research for my book.
Going to New York seemed like a dream. It felt like I knew the city. I was drawn into the long alleys as if they are wormholes, adding up 150kms in 9 days. Walking in between these gigantic building felt unreal and the view from above incredible. Later the Central Park became my place to be. It was perfect for writing breaks, long thoughtful walks before and to calm the spirit of the busy streets.
