Joseph Michael Lopez explored his home town for the first time using digital and in colour, for the new permanent exhibition, New York at its Core, at the Museum of the City of New York. The curators spent five years working on the exhibition that reveals the four hundred year history of the east coast metropolis. The exhibition is divided into three segments – Lopez’s photographs are found in Future City Lab, the section dealing with the prospects for development in New York. In his Neighborhood Spotlights series, the Leica photographer presents the particular challenges for the individual city districts, adding a human touch to the maps, drafts and statistics shown in the exhibition.

Joseph Michael Lopez

Joseph Michael Lopez was born in New York City in 1973. In search of a universal form of communication, Lopez’s admiration turned to film. To prepare for a career in film-making, he decided first to try and understand individual pictures, before working with 24 images per second. His self-taught photography gave rise to a unique imagery. At the end of the nineties he worked as a cam­eraman on Bruce Weber’s film ‘Chop Suey’. In 2009, without any formal degree but based on his portfolio, Lopez was accepted to do a Master’s in Photography at ­Columbia University, New York. Back in New York City, Lopez began to focus on analogue Street Photography in black and white.
