As a former self-described ‘mediocre’ graffiti artist and taxi driver photographing the streets of New York since 1978, Matt Weber has explored countless miles throughout the city and seen a little bit of everything.
The subjects in his photographs range from fights to embraces, from the homeless to 5th Avenue, from Harlem to Coney Island.

The ban, implemented in the wake of complaints by the district’s home and business owners, includes a fine of up to 10,000 yen but when I'm asked to imagine a safe place that feels like home, I picture communities connecting across generations and backgrounds, neighbourhood kids playing on cul-de-sac streets and well-cared for public gardens, beaches, and parks for people to enjoy. There is a route up from Chiang Mai that i might try but its all hills and my fitness has gotta be pretty fucked so might have to work up to it somehow.
