"Wealth of Tales", Doyers Street, Chinatown. "These are streets that represent so much more than merely a geographical spot," Gucwa says of Chinatown. "These streets are the embodiment of a core concept that has defined New York City for many decades. The sheer density of people that grace these streets with their presence seems to imbue (them) with the weight of their aspirations."

"The Day Pauses", Botanica, Lower East Side. "I actually find the process of editing phone photography to be far more of a zen experience than editing my digital photos," Gucwa explains. "It could have something to do with the more tactile quality of phone photo editing apps. They're designed to streamline the editing process with results that are strikingly beautiful. It's an exciting time in terms of the sheer number of innovations being made on a regular basis in mobile photography."
