My recent work , the result of five trips between 2015 and june 2019 ,
is based on the history of New York street,
many years later, it still a certain heritage of urban culture by people 
who hang out in the streets.
The soul of New York does not disappear
You will also see in this home page some photos taken in Paris, Berlin and London
