Artist's Statement: "This is a love letter to two beautiful cities. In November 2012, I moved across the Atlantic. New York had been my home for seven years. I belonged to New York. It was, and always will be, my city. But then I arrived in London and fell in love. It was thrilling to hunt for all the little differences between the two cities, and comforting to find moments of familiarity. Soon, London felt like home as well. So now I belong to two cities. I created this series of double exposures to map the intersections between two sets of streets and skylines. The resulting images are part New York, part London, and collectively represent my vision of home. New York + London explores place, memory, and identity through architecture and nostalgia. Brooklyn Bridge Park meets Leicester Square. Whitehall meets the South Bronx. The High Line meets Knightsbridge. After a while, the cacophony of concrete and street life begins to blend into something more universal. My hope is that in the noise and silence, everyone will find something that feels like home."
