If you follow us on Instagram, you will notice that today begins our 2014 Instagram Take-Over with a very talented Queens born, Gowanus based Street Photographer Fabian Palencia @febsmatic who says about Brooklyn, it’s “the home for cultural awareness.”
I will be doing a more in-depth interview with Fabian (tonight actually) – a preview of his photography exhibit opening next week.
In the meantime, I will leave you with a description of one of his own favorite photo experiences:
I photographed people riding the escalator in the Toys R Us in Times Square when I was last minute shopping for my son. I was really into the lighting. It’s a toy store, but a total acid experience.
A photo rule he lives by, “shoot first, ask questions later.”
