Exhibit

Vision

The  objective  is  to  create  a  unique  journalistic  photography   exhibit  of  New  York  street  musicians,  interweaved  with   intimate  narratives  of  their  passion,  hope  and  despair.       The  raw  imagery  and  intense  details  artistically  portray  these   individuals  as  not  only  artists,  but  also  as  the  invisible   entrepreneurs  that  exist  among  us.  Their  music  touches  us  in   ways  we  may  not  realize,  and  their  stories  reveal  the  tenacity   and  resourcefulness  that  is  key  to  every  aspiring  entrepreneur.     The  photos  are  taken  with  no  artificial  lighting  or  studio  setup.   The  prints  will  be  made  on  matte  boards  without  cover  or   framing  to  preserve  their  unpolished  daily  surrounding.       A  few  selected  musicians  are  to  perform  throughout  the  week   to  accompany  the  photography.  We  want  our  audience  and   viewers  to  walk  away  from  the  combination  of  visual  and  audio   experience  with  a  new  sense  of  perspective  on  street   musicians,  inspiration  to  pursue  their  own  passion,  and  a   renewed  understanding  of  entrepreneurship.
