About the artists:

Alani Cruz
Born and raised on the Upper West Side of Manhattan/Harlem. He shows the Big Apple's heart and soul through his photos and interactions. Also a silent man, with the contrast of his travels through living in Japan and Berlin, he points out the human race as equals and not class, religion or culture. Just the common reality of equal emotion.
(Rest in peace Alani Cruz )

East NBT
New York raised who has seen more of New York than most.

Tui Tekaaho
Queens, NY raised New Yorker who shows the everyday, working class 9-5er's human interaction with life and their microcosms colliding. A true example of "You Dont See That Every Day" 
but you surely do ...

Kailas Gurung
English bred photographer who captures daily life on home soil and abroad. Travelling frequently to Nepal and Singapore his work covers many cultures and scapes. 

Jah-Jah Azie Brown
A Bronx born artist, writer, poet, musician and general humanitarian. Childhood friend of Alani Cruz, he also has travelled the globe performing, meeting and creating. Documenting most of it on an old camera Alani gave him. 

René Harriman Clegg
An Englishman who has been exploring New York since the age of 17. A healthy obsession with documenting life and the people in his.
