Profiles:NYC is a daily series about people in New York City. It combines first-person narrative audio with street photography to create one-minute glimpses into the lives of strangers.
Hopefully this might shift some perspective about the people who surround us every day – people we don’t know, people we tend to brush past. If you’re walking down 8th Ave, or weaving through Union Square, or sitting in Prospect Park, and find yourself thinking, “I wonder who that is?”, maybe this little project can give you the encouragement to just take a deep breath…and ask.
Profiles:NYC is produced by Austin Mitchell and features the photography of Johnny Cirillo.
