Wispy clouds nestle into architectural niches, drip down walls, and sway in nets in Eric Kogan’s serendipitous street photography (previously). During commutes around New York City, he spots playful and coincidental interactions between nature, light, and the human-built environment.

“Walks have always been a big part of the process,” he tells Colossal, sharing that being able to observe the city at a slow speed and stop when he notices a tantalizing scene is essential. He continues, “If there is a place that I have to be in my city and I could get there by foot, I would take it over using transportation. Not just for photography’s sake but also for the simple act of moving at my own pace.”
