NYC Street Photographer

Martin Cartagena

Most of Cartagena’s photos have this storytelling quality, invoking more questions than answers. The fact that Cartagena surreptitiously followed a random and potentially dangerous man up the street based on a sense of “weird energy” is partly indicative of his creative instincts and partly of his dedication to the practice of street photography. He always carries a camera with him and says he’s constantly on the lookout for interesting scenes to photograph.
