Photographer: Jorge Garcia
When I walk, I try not to think of anything. I try to keep an empty mind and rely on my intuition to make photographs. These images are moments that I was drawn to without much reason.
Jorge Garcia (Born Miami, 1984) is a NYC based freelance photographer. He spends most of his time wandering sidewalks looking for interesting spontaneous moments. He always shoots candidly and rarely speaks to the people he captures. Influences include Garry Winogrand, Matt Stuart, Gus Powell, Aaron Berger, and Andre Wagner to name a few. Clients include Vice, Konbini, AFAR Magazine, Vox.com, AirBnb, and Next Level UK.
In 2015, he founded the NYC Street Photography Collective (NYC-SPC) as a way for local street photographers to meet and share their thoughts on the genre as an alternative to web based communities. The goal was to establish a local community for street photographers to exchange ideas, experiences, photographs, while promoting the art of shooting street.
