New York is a city of cities, a network of networks, and a galaxy of galaxies. I am regularly amazed at how one's entire spiritual and atmospheric landscape can change by simply crossing a street or going one stop too far on a bus or subway. In photography I look for the things that make me feel I took that subway one stop too far, or took a turn into an undiscovered neighborhood. I look for what others might miss, from the momentarily beautiful to the ruggedly repugnant.
From 1999 to late 2010 I published a nearly-daily 'Big Picture' at my personal web site ( sorabji.com
). In those years numerous visitors to the site offered to purchase prints should they be made available. I hesitated for a long time but decided, once and for all, to make available high-quality prints for sale to those who are interested.
In addition to the 'Big Pictures' I have focused my lens on Gravestone Sepulchral Portraits
, Discarded Umbrella Carcasses
, and Abandoned Baby Strollers
My style of photograph could probably be safely described as 'street' or 'urban'. Most of my photos at FineArtAmerica.com will come from within the 5 boroughs of New York City, though occasional travels yielded photos from other places. I am just getting started here but look forward to being a part of things here.
