Sophie stands in an unfinished Brooklyn apartment building. The Empire State Building is visible through the window; it is sunset over the Manhattan skyline. Faint hues of greenish-blue contrast with the bright red terry cloth robe draped over her shoulders, revealing her naked body. She portrays perpetual aspiration; the uncompleted trophy apartment, the city out of reach. It is a bittersweet story of, “so much achieved, much more yearned for.”
New York is known around the world and many people have a personal connection to the metropolis. Whenever I visit Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, I am inspired by the art I see and the culture of the city. Although I have visited a dozen times before, this image is from my first ever photo project in New York.

False color technique
Using the technique of false color, I produce a restrained color palette. The method is inspired by my training in oil painting, and pays homage to the classic technique of hand-colored photography. Color is applied selectively to give a greater illusion of depth as well as evoke an emotional response.
