The Penniless Photographer

In my adventures through the land of Tumblr, I started seeing some images that looked like they were taken by the same person. So what did I do? I followed the trail back through tumblr to the source. The Penniless Photographer is, in his own words, an immigrant to NYC and his tumblr seems to at times be a visual diary of sorts exploring the feelings of a man in a foreign land, trying to work out where he stands in this new place. He explores loneliness, hope, dreams and all sorts of things. He doesn’t post a lot and doesn’t reblog other’s work from what I can see. I love the warmth and colour in his photos, as well as his seeming comfort with nudity, of course. Click the images above to see them larger.

    You’re right the pictures are great looking. Do you think the model is being photoshopped into the pictures? And is the model the photographer?

    Thank you for the nice write up!_:)
    I’m big fan of your photography! Your use of light and compositions are stunning!

    Quick respond to Jon– Those are self-portraits. Im the model & photographer. I did not photoshop myself into images. I was actually nude in the landscape. The idea was being nude in photographs to show how I was vulnerable in the big city NYC when I moved here.I do have self-portraits with clothing too-:)
