Brooklyn Street Photographer Andre D. Wagner Talks Us Through His Photographic Process

Here’s a short, inspiring video profile of Brooklyn-based street photographer Andre D. Wagner.

That’s exactly why Stockholm-based photographer Simon Röder wanted so badly to go there. And after some planning and a few obstacles, the street photographer was able to turn the trip into a reality, and come back with the photos to prove it. Read more…
