New York is the craziest city I have ever seen. It is unwelcoming and many photographs say that it is not photogenic. It is a city that eats you alive if you don't follow its rules exactly.

It is also a mirror. A mirror that would show you who you are, how much you can bear, where you belong and what you deserve.

This city has sent me back to the streets and given me a chance to do what I thought I have already forgotten. It has sent me to the streets where everything can be found, even things we otherwise try to arrange, make up, deceive others or oneself...
