When one walks down the street in New York City, there is a tendency to look up and admire the towering buildings that line the streets like metal and glass trees. Due partially to my short stature (5'0") and a remaining childhood fixation to avoid stepping on cracks, I walk the streets looking down. These photos are what I have found: things forgotten, things abandoned, things that occasionally felt like omens. Taken over the course of four years, these photos tell a different story, one not of the people, but what the people have left behind.
