A recent trip to New York gave me the opportunity to finally get to know a city, that until then I had only seen on screen. Luckily my mission to get an interview with New Yorks premier headshot photographer “Peter Hurley” gave me a few days to soak in the city. So many friendly faces, endless alleys and high rising buildings, it gave me hurting feet. I was walking all day long, trying to breathe in the flavor, to connect and to take notes on the many occasions and inspirations. A visit to the Empire State Building brought a breathtaking view and some food for thought: only a few hundred years ago churches have been the highest buildings, now its mostly offices and media antennas that rise to the sky in these endless giants of brick, steel and concrete to cement their reach.
