THE CITY OF THINGS UNNOTICED.
Because on this blog we are not looking to portray an appealing image of the city we live in, but because we strive to show you it’s true soul. It can be magical, sad, angry or inspiring. Whatever it is, from now on, we’re opening a new chapter in www.twentyfivehundred.com- My New York.
Meet our new tribe member- Misha Gulko, Big Apple street photographer, a collector of New York City character portraits and stories through his paparazzi lens and sharp eye.
Every city has a character, but no city is like New York and to tell you my stories about this amazing melting pot is a pleasure, but I have always, since the very beginning of this blog, wanted to add a photographer to our team, to show you the versatile and at time bizarre beauty of this city and it’s inhabitants.
“In some cities the character is very apparent, in some it’s subtle and there are places that require time and effort to understand and to start feeling them“, says Misha on his FB page.
“And then there is New York – city with multiple personalities. If NYC was a person it would probably have been eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia or with bipolar disorder. New York is full of love and of loneliness, of hope and of despair, of wealth and of poverty. New York can amaze you, can romance you, can frighten you and can drive you crazy. But one thing New York won’t do is leave you indifferent.”
New York is created by the people who walk it’s streets and live in it’s houses. By people who fill this city with all these emotions. There are immigrants and refugees, there are locals and passers through, there are those who stand out in the rush hour crowd and there are those who blend in; there are those who love this crazy place an those who will leave it brokenhearted. To me personally this place is like no other on Earth, but that doesn’t mean that it’s better. In all its complexity and roughness, this city gives you a chance to be who you really are and in that way it’s in line with what I am building here. I want this city to have a chapter in this project and with help of an amazing photographer and his camera, we are now going to have a chance to submerge into the world of colorful contradictions, honest stories and those picturesque New York moments we all know this city for.
So, with all that said, I welcome you to this new chapter!
My New York.
