The Pick up
Located in the historic SoHo neighborhood, Hosanna Swee arrives in New York's Leica store to pick up the Leica Q. "Photography to me is a journey. It is a constant process of unveiling the layers. This is not only an outward movement, seeking truth through documentation, but an inward process of discovering yourself."
"New York city has always inspired me since the beginning. It is one of the most diverse cities in the world that evolves at a rapid pace. In this urban sprawl, there are spaces, which are often overlooked, where so much of the city's history and culture is embedded, where tall skyscrapers tower incongruously next to gritty hawker stalls."
The Dichotomy of Subject
"Despite its reputation as a city that never sleeps. New York City still retains a fierce sense of heritage. Through this series, I envision to distil this dichotomy by juxtaposing the old and the new - capturing the essence of New York City, which demonstrates its evolution as a global hub, while still showing the traits of its rich heritage and recalling the city's yesteryears."
