Abstract in El Barrio

I was out giving the Harlem Street Photography Workshop yesterday and I managed to do a few double exposures before and during it. I adore photography across many genres. My current past time is spent doing intentional camera movement in a circular or arching motion and double exposures that include distinguishable objects as well as purely abstract pieces. I like blurring the line between photography and painting. This piece is an example which I've printed on watercolor paper to add texture. Yes, the difference between photography and painting is that the surface of a photo is smooth. - Abstract in El Barrio, NYC, 12 March 2017.
