This intriguing photograph shows a man striding over the street in all it’s simplicity, yet it reveals a life outside the main characters universe. Beautiful.

One of our favorites. This photograph has a flow and as as if the person is being dragged. It’s a very interesting effect, along with the tonality take makes it very simple.

Massive thanks for the selection! Much appreciated. This shot was taken in the early morning when the low sun streams between the buildings in downtown Chicago, creating these intense shafts of golden light contrasted with deep shadows. I waited for the perfect light and subject and was lucky enough to catch this man hurriedly making his way across the street. Shot with a Sony a7rii and Gmaster f2.8 24-70 lens. Just a little contrast work in Lightroom to make everything pop a bit more.
