Central Station is a hub of activity in the heart of New York City, a place where people from all walks of life converge in pursuit of their dreams. As a photographer, I was drawn to the energy and vibrancy of the scene, and I wanted to capture it in a way that reflected the city's dynamic character. Using the technique of ICM (Intentional Camera Movement), I allowed the light to dance and blur around the frame, creating an otherworldly effect that reflects the pace and intensity of life in the city.

The blue and yellow tones in this image represent the dual nature of the New York experience. The blue orbs of light that surround the people symbolise the frenetic energy of the city, the rushing, the crowds, and the chaos. Meanwhile, the yellow represents the hope and determination of the people, their aspirations and their dreams. These two contrasting elements coexist in New York, creating a unique and inspiring environment that attracts people from all over the world.

As a photographer, I believe that art has the power to transcend language and culture, and this image of Central Station is a testament to that idea. Through my use of ICM, I aimed to create a work of art that captured the essence of New York and its people, conveying both the energy and the hope that are so integral to the city's character.

This blue and yellow ICM photograph of Central Station in New York is a tribute to the city's dynamic personality and the people who make it what it is. It is an example of the power of photography as an art form to capture the essence of a place and the stories of its people.

The City Blues Collection

Photographing New York, a city of immense contrast, with its relentless pace, towering skyscrapers, and melting pot of cultures. As a visitor, I find myself drawn to its energy and complexity, and on my recent trip, I wanted to capture the essence of the city through my photographs. The blue and yellow tones in my series represent the struggle and the hope that are so integral to the New York experience. The city is notorious for its brutal competitiveness, but it is also a place where dreams can come true with hard work and determination.

Through my photo editing, I wanted to depict the multifaceted nature of New York, showcasing both its gritty, urban side alongside its shining moments of triumph. Each photo in the series tells a story about the city, using colour to reflect the various shades of the New York experience. From the cold blues that symbolise the challenges evident in the city to the warm yellows that represent the promise of success, these photos are a testament to the resilience and diversity of New York.

Whether you're a native New Yorker or a visitor like myself, these photos offer a glimpse into the city's many layers. They serve as a reminder that in a place as complex as New York, success and struggle often go hand in hand and that the journey to the top is rarely a straightforward one.

As a photographer, I believe that photography is a powerful medium for capturing the spirit of a place, photography as an art form has a wonderful ability to tell stories that transcend borders and cultures. The City Blues collection of blue and yellow photos from New York offers a unique perspective on the city, highlighting its complexity and the endless opportunities it presents.
