By Nicole Hughes in Video on Thursday 30 October 2014

Here is a glimpse of a day in the life of an average woman in NYC. You wake up, throw on jeans and a t-shirt and leave for the subway. Catcalls are a part of your day. It’s almost second nature at this point. You know walking down the street looking average will at least warrant a, ‘Hey. How you doin’?’ from the bored man in a lawn chair sitting near his favorite bodega.

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Photography on Thursday 23 October 2014

There’s just something about New York City that makes you go to therapy. Ok, not everyone, but a large number of New Yorkers see a psychiatrist and their offices range in size and design, from opulent library-type rooms to tiny spaces in a basement apartment. Psychiatrist Sebastian Zimmerman was intrigued by the different offices therapy takes place in New York City, so he decided to photograph them, leading to his book, Fifty Shrinks.

Pit bulls in a New York dog home are given a makeover to change stereotypes

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Sunday 31 August 2014

Some breeds of dog are unfairly stereotyped, and none more so that the pit bull. We look at a greyhound and think racing, associate a chihuahua with socialites and the west highland terrier with monopoly. None of these associations are negative and, more importantly, unlikely to affect the decision of a potential adopter.

Photo series shows the reactions of New York subway riders when strangers fall asleep on them

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Photography on Saturday 28 June 2014

I’m from London, a city famous for holding millions of people that go to incredible lengths not to talk to each other. The morning commute on the London Underground is silent as the grave, people jammed in cheek by jowl, yet still trying in vain to imagine there isn’t somebody else’s face less then six inches from the end of their nose. It’s depressing, unfriendly, a little shameful and more or less true for every metro/subway/whateveryoucallit in the world.
