cities in pixie dust

this project aims to be a visual storybook documenting cities – and the lifeforce and people who make them alive.  the agony and the ecstacy. the beautiful, the mundane, the silly and the bizarre. 

Cities have their own rhythm and hustle, they can be anything you want them to be. Sometimes the city seems harsh, mean, gritty; everyone seems angry and in a rush, or out to get each other. Sometimes the city seems hopeless and sprawling, lonely and isolated - millions of people constantly passing you by, but no one to reach out to. But sometimes the city is amazing – a place where people come together and collaborate and celebrate – a place of endless possibilities. I’d like to think this website is a place of endless possibilities to explore all of those things … and everything in-between. A tall order?

if you have ideas or would like to contribute to this project, please get in touch.

I’m still figuring out exactly what I’d like to be posting, and tweaking out the site design, so some things may change a little bit here and there until it feels right. So hang tight or send your feedback.

For now, I’ll leave you with an old, but favorite photograph, taken in the early ’00s in new york city around the Christmas holidays. I like to think it captures the feeling that anything can be possible, with a little optimism and a little luck.
