 With shots from Brooklyn to Harlem, Amon has captured the city’s most intimate thoughts, strict warnings and unwarranted motherly advice and put them in a book.

Amon Focus is a New York City-based Creative Director enamored with filmmaking, photography, travel, art, fresh music, good eats, great people and all things creative. Amon’s latest work is featured on Discover AmericaDigital Photo and Huffington Post

With the success of New York Said: Volume One, it just made sense to keep going and create New York Said: Volume Two.

Help make New York Said: Volume Two a reality by sharing and spreading the word! 

 

Risks and challenges

Prior to the second volume of my photographic series, I’ve tried to accomplish all things New York Said by myself. It just seemed cost-effective to wear all the hats. After the enriching experience of New York Said: Volume One, I'm pretty aware of the risks and challenges as well as the long road ahead to make this idea tangible.

This entire project is a risk for me. That being said, I'm willing to fight for a win. My objective is to make sure New York Said: Volume Two (plus rewards) are delivered on time. Please note that shipping dates are estimates and subject to change. Should I encounter any delays in production or delivery, I will update supporters right here on Kickstarter.

Thank you for your support!
