Musicians of New York City


The photo project on Musicians of New York is going great. You can review the articles on individual musicians here Street Musicians & Artists of New York City. The Photo Album is also regularly updated with new photos of these musicians playing in New York City,

The photograph in this post shows Matinga & Yannyck Chaka playing the Djembe to African marshal tunes in Central Park, New York City.

Matinga & Yannyck Chaka are few of the many musicians who have been photographed as part of the Musicians of New York City photo project in the summer of 2011. With time I have come to know many of them personally, got a glimpse of their life, their love for music and for many, their struggle to keep music alive.

Musicians of New York City

The Musicians of New York City project is photographed mostly using Nikon film & digital professional camera gears & mostly using various wide angle & Nikon portrait lenses. The entire gallery is done exclusively in Black & White (they are not digitally desaturated!) with a few color photos in between.

The photos of the musicians of New York City displayed here are not digitally manipulated & displayed here as they were shot. Their size is considerably reduced. If you are looking for the best resolution digital files or professional prints, please email me with the details.
