Le Duet

Le Duet goes out more often than not, with each other, to take pictures.
 


Creeping the streets of Manhattan through the quiet of early morning haze, or at midnight's darkest hour, they see together, disparate visions of the city.

The figure appears as part of the composition in uptowneastnyc's work. Individuality is only an archetype, allowing the combined elements of the picture to create a magical whole.

The individual in dopez's pictures is ever present, whether in front of the camera or behind. So specific to the situation in the frame and yet touching us: a feeling that is only human emanates from the subject and colors the mood of the photo landscape, and our own.

While Theo's camera captures the beauty and grace we live amongst in our daily lives, Diana's captures the soul.

To go from uptowneastnyc's work to dopez's is like being on the beach, looking up at the skyscape and the ocean horizon, then lowering your gaze and hearing the conversation of the family next to you.

Osiris Zuniga, Brooklyn Woman Of Steel

Osiris Zuniga has a powerful, mystical, mastery of steel.

Manipulating it to her will, she performs an alchemy of transcendence.

Obliterating the mythical confines of masculine and feminine, she goes beyond our known universe, jolting us as spectators into a world of her creation. She looks out at us from this ethereal space forged of iron and ore, taunting our sense of containment, entrapment, protection, armor, our sense of what is human. 

Structure and body together manifest a place we have never been before. There is a dangerous sensation that she might leave us behind, that perhaps she already has.
