I’m Lucca, a fine art photographer living in NYC. Let me tell you the details of my project.
First and foremost, my project is called "Four". Four is the name of a photography book that I’m going to be working on throughout the course of one year as the four seasons take over the streets of NYC. With a Fujifilm X100S camera I will take snapshots of the people, streets, buildings...everything that can capture the noise of the city in an image. The photographs will be in black and white and the book will contain some personal prose between each season.
I was born in New York City but was raised in Puerto Rico. As a child, my mother and I would shuffle back and forth between the island and Manhattan. I was always mesmerized by the rawness of the streets, and was witness to the changes that brought the city to its current form. Every year I yearned to experience the city for a longer period of time, but my stay was always seasonal, never allowing me to see the transition from summer to fall. As an adult, I’ve maintained residence here for more than a decade but have decided to move to another city in search of new subject matter. Recently, I began studying the photographs work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, a French photographer famous for his life reportage style. I’ve decided to take to the streets with a compact camera and, like Henri, take candid photographs of my city to document my last year in New York and create a unique black and white photographic journal.
Risks and challenges
My ultimate goal is to find a publisher for my book and to sell it in stores. But If I don't have luck, I will self-publish and print by demand online.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
