was the first city I lived in when I arrived in the United States. I have been back there a handful of times in the past 10 years and each time I have left feeing fuller, older and inspired. Yes, I think New York has always been that to me.
There is movement in that city and so many stories.
In New York I recall stories of my childhood. I was born and lived in Budapest until I was thirteen. I remember what a city sounds like; how the hot concrete smells in the summer; eating cherries at a crowded bus stop; the weight of a whole day of walking on my feet.
I photographed Anna and Brian in New York a little while ago. They are vibrant, kind and incredibly interesting people. Their son Max was around 1 years old when I met them. I was so drawn their little unit of three. I felt that bubble they created. It was love and trust and happiness.
