Even if it seems easy from the outside, street photography is hard and complex work. Photography artist Jonathan Higbee takes street photographs with amazing perspectives. There are so many coincidences which create amazing images thanks to convenient perspectives that we even don’t realize in daily life. The artist catches these moments and shows us there are many coincidently interesting images in daily life.
“I came to this photograph and noticed something I had missed while making it—or at least wasn’t consciously aware of while shooting—a man reaching out to pull back a friend as the two seemingly teetered on the edge of the towering skyscrapers,” Higbee tells My Modern Met. “The unbelievable coincidence infused the image with an interesting, riveting narrative that elevated the work substantially. I was instantly hooked. I’ve been intentionally hunting the city for uncanny coincidences ever since.”
