NEW YORK IMPROVISATIONS
IN CONVERSATION WITH BILL LACEY
Photography by Bill Lacey
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Bill Lacey is a New York based street photographer who documents the daily life on the streets of the city that never sleeps, embracing its people and the towering architecture. He generally finds himself approaching street photography as an jazz improvisation, creating his own candid compositions filled with heart and soul from spending a lifetime walking the streets of New York.
"Jazz stands for freedom. It's supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don't be a perfectionist - leave that to the classical musicians.''
