Summer in the City

August 06, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Summer in the City is a body of work documenting various aspects of summer life in the inner city (mostly in the Bronx), entirely shot and post-processed using an iPhone.
My favorite and perhaps most visually dynamic subject, was the "hydrant battles", going on in the sweltering streets, being enjoyed by children and adults alike.

In this particular instance, working with an iPhone enabled me to get closer to my subjects and shoot more candidly than I probably could have done with a professional camera.

Also, trough the iPhone I was able to post one-two images everyday to my Instagram stream (@magneticart), establishing a constructive dialogue with many of my followers and experiencing first hand the real strength of the Instagram platform, which is not, as some believe, in its gimmicky camera filters effects, but rather in its powerful "instant broadcasting" capabilities to large, worldwide audiences.
