In 2010, upon my graduating from New York Film Academy I made a series of short documentaries about New Yorkers with an outspoken visual identity.  I called this series ‘New York Style Stories’ and the 6 episodes premiered online with Limboland TV. The series addresses the online dominance of street style, our fascination with people-watching, and the idea that we all ‘brand’ ourselves in a certain way.  The portraits continue my long-term exploration into the relationship between Self and Personae – where do the two meet and co-exist?
