You Are Here- workshop with Photographer Jeff Jacobson

March 31, 2010

I’m not an on the fly street shooter, or so I thought. Everyday for a week we went out and shot on the street, making friends and connections as often as we could and even scoring some free food and gifts along the way! I hit the jackpot on the second day of the course, meeting a man who is known as the “Mayor of 7th Street” because he sits in a garden chair outside his home/shop and talks to everyone like he’s still home in Italy. His name is Anthony Pisano and he is amazing. His home is a forest of watch pieces and instruments surrounded by old photographs and trinkets. If he likes you, he will sell to you. If he doesn’t like you, he will tell you the place is closed and kick you out! Check it out- 7th Street between 1st avenue and Avenue A.

and then some other scenes around the East Village…
