On The Road with Thorsten Overgaard · The September 2015 Journal
 
Most mornings I will get outside Stumptown Coffee at ACE Hotel in New York and have two cappuccinos while I do my office thing on the phone and enjoy the moment of sun coming from two sides. This plance and scene what I see for my eye when I think about New York: Getting out on my spot there as the first and last event every time I am in New York.

"I want to tell you thank you!

I found you on the Internet and it made me buy a Leica. I was thinking Leica's days are ove, but after I met you ... I see it's still alive and doing good. I just got the lens and its great. The process of taking pictures with Leica gives to me a great feeling and the quality is unbelievable.

Thank you and I hope meet you one day."

A Harlem Experience

Harlem, New York, USA, September 11, 2015

I went up to 125th Street in Harlem to do some location scouting for a portrait and to gain some atmosphere photos for a story on September 11, 2015.

I've never been to Harlem before, so as most people like me, you've heard it was really bad but has gotten better.

How much better I didn't really know (and how bad it was I wouldn’t know either), but as I do in most places, I am ready to experience everything and have confidence I can deal with it.

I spent four hours photographing atmosphere and people in the street and nothing of the sort your mother would warn you about happened.  The closest I got to be in trouble was a woman on 128th Street who warned me "you might get into trouble photographing people here around".

It never happened. On the contrary, when I was photographing on 126th Street, a guy wanted me to photograph him. It turned out his name was Curtis and he told me he was sentenced to 30 years in prison but was released after half of them.

 

Curtis Tilo with 12 gunshots in his body and 15 years in prison. Alive and kicking! Leica M 240 with Leica 50mm Noctilux-M ASPH f/0.95.

I never asked for what, I think I would rather not know. He had 12 gunshots in his body and had gotten them all the same day - he lifted the t-shirt and showed me his stomach that looked like he had been standing in front of a German machine gun in World War II. We did the photo and I got his phone number to send him the photo. Friendliest guy ever.

Another friendly person I met was Clerence who sold water on 125th Street. This was his two last bottles, so Joy gave him $2 for the water and $3 as his first ever model fee. Off he went, sold out and proud of working and making it work.

I find this interesting because it's a measurement for people that I use. Are they proud of their work? It doesn’t matter if they are a doctor or takes orders for burgers in "brgr", or if they sell water bottles. Who doesn't want to connect with people who are proud of what they are doing and who are doing it well, rather than people who hate what they are doing and everything associated with it?

Whoever his parents are, they are doing a great job.

"I visited your web site and I would like to make my complimets.

The site is really interesting. I found many precious information, the basics of photography.
Elegance, technique, and simplicity.

In these years, I find photography not more interesting for me. Only tragedy, blood and strange style. I am looking for photography made with heart. Not only for business. I love very much your style. Grazie."

Joy will be walking in New York Fashion Week and perform three concerts as well .

In LA we met with designer Andre Soriano before leaving for NYC and fittign dresses in Hollywood. It turned out he had to make a dress in a hurry, so he had to get a sewing machine in a hurry.

I'm in LA writing books before we return to Europe and Asia.

 

"Your dad is here" I tell Joy, and even it isn't her real dad, it sure feels like. Bernard Percy is a person we both knew before we met each other. Some people is like a lighthouse in your life, and Bernard is one of the few persons you can say that about. He's influenced a lot of people all over the world and travels as much or even more than me to speak and do personal consulting on career, education and raising kids.

Social media concepts

Aarhus, Denmark, September 29, 2015

How do you make it a pleasure looking at photos and get inspired? That was the question of an interesting meeting with digital designer and startup Filip Jakobsen I had before going to Berlin tonight.

Why is it that Flickr, 500px, Leica Fotopark and others all look alike and why isn't there any page that is about showing great pictures?

How do you change the interest from showing your own pictures to looking at others. Without all the likes, wievs, firends and followers, exif and all the other irrelevant fluff.
How do you go to making intersting and inspiring content, and at the same time make something that photographers would find a pleasure using?

Hopefully Filip got ammunution to shake things up and make a real change to photography and storytelling. Wait and see.

Above: Most mornings I will get outside Stumptown Coffee at ACE Hotel in New York and have two cappuccinos while I do my office thing on the phone and enjoy the moment of sun coming from two sides. This plance and scene what I see for my eye when I think about New York: Getting out on my spot there as the first and last event every time I am in New York. Leica M 240 with Leica 28mm Summilux-M ASPH f/1.4.
