Instagram TakeOver with Street Photographer Clay Benskin, from New York City – Days 6 – 7


Last week we started the first of our brand new format to our Instagram TakeOver’s and Clay Benskin – @clay_benskin performed impeccably. He agreed to publish three of his rousing street photography images per day and we have featured days 6 – 7 below.  Benskin’s’ key tropes include, people on the subway, people waiting, small groups, calm and chaotic. Sometimes the subjects are aware they’ve been captured in his frame, returning Benskin’s curious gaze, other times, they’re snatched portraits with subjects caught in movement or rumination. Benskin’s mobile street photography is a kind of visual, impressionistic diary of animated moments of modern day, New York City life. His images fill each viewer, with intensity, sharing a connection with the people he views, enlivening everyday scenes.

Huge thanks to Clay Benskin, what a week it has been viewing New York City, through your mobile lens, thank you!

Today, we will announce a new Instagram TakeOver, again with a very talented mobile photographer, stand by for that!

To view the others, please head over to our Instagram account – @theappwhisperer.
