Artist’s Note: This photo series stems from the many walks taken to capture the natural elements of New York City, and returning to find I’ve caught more than just photographs of the exterior world, but a glimpse inside a few people I hadn’t even come across. They are the result of paying attention, to both, the physical, and metaphorical, writing on the wall.
Editor’s Note: Matter Press will be publishing seven (7) images from Adel Souto’s Text Photography series, one a week, for 7 weeks. 3 of 7
