As those of you who have seen my photos know, one of my favorite genres is the genre of urban photography — especially when it’s dark and especially when it’s wet. There is something about rain, umbrellas, taxis, etc. — there’s nothing quite like them when it’s dark and you catch their bright reflections off city streets.
Scott Richard is a Santa Barbara artist and painter who shares a similar appreciation for the urban setting and has been able to translate much of what I feel in many of my photos into paint and canvas. Check out his New York series here.
