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.
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.
