New York City is a magnet that attracts so many unconventional types. They come to this great metropolis to live their lives in a way that would be impossible in the towns where they grew up. The sidewalks here are the home to many who act with little regard for the norm. For the street photographer, spotting the bizarre and unusual is commonplace. In fact, we are programmed to expect the unexpected. These unexpected (but expected) sightings on the streets of New York are what I seek to portray in this exhibit.
